Amy Mascott is the creator of teachmama.com [http://teachmama.com], where she shares tools and resources parents can use to become the best teachers they can be for their children. Recognizing the power of collaboration in the education and parenting space, Amy built the community ‘we teach’, [ http://weteachgroup.com] a network of parents and teachers who connect online and offline, share ideas, and grow as educators—no matter the classroom. ‘we teach’ has quickly become one of the most successful networks of its kind, with 6500+ members, reaching upwards of a million people online alone.
A Reading Specialist, writer, consultant, and mom to a crazy-cool 9, 8, and 6-year-old, 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, PBS Digital Studios, and more. She hails from the Keystone State but lives in the DC Metro area where she’s either cheering for her kids on the soccer field, biting her nails during swim & dive meets, or buzzing around her kids’ elementary school, doing the Room Parent thing.
