A former high school English teacher and currently a reading specialist, Amy is an educator at heart. She spent years in the classroom, years tutoring, and even helped local charter schools design their literacy programs for teachers and students. She’s also a mom to crazy-cool 9, 7, and 6-year-olds.
Amy Mascott is the creator of Teach Mama, where she shares tools and resources parents can use to become the best teachers for their children. Recognizing the need for more peer collaboration, three years ago Amy built the community We Teach, a forum for parents and teachers to connect, share ideas and grow as educators.
Amy’s reflections on literacy, parenting and social media have been featured on dozens of online and print publications, including Scholastic Parents, PBS Parents, readwritethink.org, Mom’s Homeroom and more.
