Hi! My name is Michele (aka Mama Owl). I’ve been a first grade teacher for four years now. Prior that, I taught kindergarten for three years. I also teach Sunday School and work with the youth group at our church. My wonderful husband is also a teacher so you’ll probably see a few guest posts by him on my blog. After years of trying to become parents, we were able to adopt a baby boy in August!

My aim is to share stories and advice that might be able to help other teachers trying to improve their teaching while balancing other aspects of their lives. I’m always trying to find ways to work smarter rather than just working harder.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog!
