2013 Ultimate Blog Party~ Meet Me.

(This post may contain affiliate links. See my Disclosure Policy for details.)
Welcome to Teach Beside Me!  
I am participating in the Ultimate Blog Party today where we get to meet up with LOTS of other bloggers. If you have never been here before, I’ll share a little about who I am and what my site is all about. I hope you’ll stick around and get to know me a little better. 
This is me & my three little ones.
We live in Utah with a mountain in our back yard. We homeschool, and we LOVE it. I am a former public school teacher. I taught home economics in a high school until I had my first child. I have been lucky enough to be a stay-at-home ever since. I love cooking & also write a cooking blog HERE
I blog here about homeschooling & the fun that surrounds it.

I host a weekly linky party called Share It Saturday

I would love to have some of you come back and link up!  
Teach Beside Me

I also have a weekly guest post series called “Why Homeschool?” It has been a really fun way to connect homeschool families & read about their wonderful stories.

  7. This is my first year participating in the Ultimate Blog Party and it’s neat to discover new blogs, especially when they are homeschooling blogs! Can’t believe I’ve never visited your site before…love the Why Homeschool idea and will be following.

  8. I enjoy your blog! It’s always nice to see the person behind the blog. Your kiddos are cuties!

  9. Hi, Karyn! UBP13 brought me by.

    I’m really excited to find other educators blogging, and it sounds like you have both homeschool and public school experience.

    My mom ALMOST homeschooled us, then she figured out four kids is a lot of mouths to feed :-} I would’ve been proud to have her as my teacher, though.

  10. Nice to “meet” you! I am glad to have found your blog! I am enjoying it very much! I am also glad to find other educators in the Ultimate Blog Party! HOpe we can stay in touch! I am looking forward to getting deeper into reading your articles!

  13. Hi, new follower here! I found you on UBP13! Your blog is awesome and we definitely have alot in common! Please come by and follow me on my new blog! Have a blessed day!

  14. Thanks for stopping by our blog during UBP13 and for being a regular reader! I think I’m going to have to book mark you and delve into your blog a little more when I’ve got the time!
