Washington, DC

Amy Mascott is the creator of teachmama.com, where she shares tools and resources parents can use to become the best teachers for their children. Capitalizing on learning opportunities in the every day and inspiring curiosity through games and play, Amy encourages a ‘lifestyle of learning’ where parents both prepare their children for school and help children to grow excited and informed about the world around them. Recognizing the need for more peer collaboration, Amy built the community ‘we teach’, http://weteachgroup.com a forum for parents and teachers to connect, share ideas, and grow as educators—no matter the classroom. ‘we teach’ has quickly become one of the most successful and highly-trafficked educational forums on the web.

A Reading Specialist, writer, consultant, and mom to a crazy-cool 8, 6, and 5-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, Mom’s Homeroom, 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.
