The First Hoot from The Owl Teach!

Ahhhhhhh! I'm SO excited to finally be launching The Owl Teach blog! Becoming a teacher blogger has been a personal goal for quite some time. I have read and followed countless other amazing teachers over the past several years, learned from them, laughed with them, but I just wasn't ready to take the leap of faith that I could also share my experiences in teaching! However, I'm blessed with some of the most amazingly supportive family and friends, who gave me the push of confidence I needed. So The Owl Teach was born!

As in most things in teaching (or life really), getting this blog up and running did not go as planned. I had the PERFECT plan in fact, the grandparents would keep the baby for a weekend, while my husband and I would watch videos and read tutorials to design the cutest blog ever.  Sounds easy enough, I mean I had pinned dozens of "how to" articles about blogging, we are relatively tech savvy, easy as pie we thought! I created my logo, had my design concept in mind, all we needed to do was write the code to put everything in place. Nine hours of frustration later...I was scouring the web for blog design company options...hubs and I were willing to pay just about ANYTHING to have someone else take on this job for us! So we can thank the design team, especially my fabulous designer Corinne, from The Cutest Blog on the Block, who took my vision and brought it to life! Seriously, if you are looking for a fresh look for your blog, website, etc. check them out!

Moving forward I plan to share my experiences in and out of the classroom with you, hopefully, with a slightly humorous twist...which is how I try to look at life day to day. If I couldn't laugh, I might just go crazy! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll visit often! Check out my TPT store and follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest!  I'm looking forward to meeting and talking to so many other awesome teachers!

Hootfully yours,
