1st Grade - Nelson Prairie
Hi everyone! My name is Ms. Brianna Schultz and I am so excited to be starting my third year of teaching. This is my first year at Nelson Prairie and I am thrilled to be teaching in the district that I grew up in! I graduated from Lincoln-Way Central and then from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I have always had a love for learning that I can't wait to share with my students as we continue to learn and grow together. In our classroom we will work together to create a welcoming and supportive community where everyone can succeed. I cannot wait to see all that we accomplish this year!
Started Working at NLSD: 2021
This is my third year teaching, but first year at Nelson Prairie. In the past, I have taught both Kindergarten and first grade.
Favorite thing about teaching:
I love that no day is the same and even though I am helping students learn, I love that I can learn so much from them too. I love watching them grow and succeed, seeing our classroom work together as a team, and finding ways to make learning fun!
I currently live in New Lenox with my mom, dad, and our new puppy Bailee! I have a younger sister who also plays softball and so many close aunts, uncles, and cousins in the area.
Graduated From: The University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign
I graduated from Lincoln-Way Central High School, and then from the University of Illinois with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. Go Illini!

I love spending time with family and friends, especially up at my aunt and uncle's lake house in Michigan. I greatly enjoy being outdoors, staying active, and exploring or traveling whenever I can. I also grew up playing softball and now coach at Lincoln-Way Central. In my free time, I love reading, shopping, crafting, and exercising!
