Christy Schultz, The Nature Teacher and Founder of ECO-Every Child Outside,  has been working with children and teaching for more than 20 years.  Her experience is diverse and unique.  After graduating from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education she spent many years teaching in the traditional classroom.  Looking for a change and seeing a need for environmental education in the community, she discovered the wonders of the outdoor classroom, where she has continued inspiring and educating both the young and old on the beauty and science of  Florida’s  natural ecosystems.

As a Certified Florida Master Naturalist and Certified Interpretive Guide, Christy is well-trained and versed in the intricacies of Florida Natural History. She has spent the last 10 years out in the field – along our coastal shores, in the waters of the swamps, and hiking the highlands.  She and her students are always discovering, exploring, and learning.
