Amy Mascott is the creator of teachmama.com, where her focus is to share the tools and resources parents need to be the best teachers for their children. She’s paving the way for a more modern ‘lifestyle of learning’, empowering all parents to take a stronger role in supporting their children’s early learning.
In February 2010, Amy created we teach as a forum for parents and teachers to connect, share ideas, and grow into better educators—no matter the classroom. ‘we teach’ has grown quickly into one of the most successful and highly-trafficked educational forums on the web.
A Reading Specialist, Literacy Consultant, freelance writer, and mom to a crazy-cool 8, 7, and 5-year-old, Amy’s work has been featured on dozens of online and print publications, and she has handed over many teaching tools to parents during speaking engagements. Her blog has been syndicated on Scholastic Parents, and her YouTube channel is part of PBS Digital Studios.
Amy is an active member of the Melissa & Doug Blog Ambassadors, The DC Moms, Mabel's Labels Buzzmamas, the Bing Squad, and Washington Family Magazine Bloggers. Offline, Amy sits on her children's Preschool Ministry Board, she created and facilitates the Family Mentoring program at her kids' elementary school, and she runs Kindergarten Orientation. And she loves every minute of all of it.
