Name Amy Mascott
Location DC Metro, Maryland
Role Reading Specialist, Blogger
Membership International Reading Association (IRA)
 

"Everyone--parents, caregivers, and teachers of all levels and disciplines--needs to know about ReadWriteThink.org. The partnership between IRA and NCTE is powerful, but along with Verizion Thinkfinity, whose goal is to improve student achievement, this site will only continue to grow and expand its incredible wealth of resources."

A Reading Specialist, freelance writer, former high school English teacher, and mom to three, Amy’s work has been featured on dozens of online and print publications.  She is a contributor for Scholastic’s Parents Online, PBS Parents, and Mom’s Homeroom; she has been a literacy contributor for Washington Times Communities and columnist for Rockville Patch.  Amy is currently a parenting editor and contributor for The DC Moms.

Amy 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 not a full-fledged homeschooling mom; rather, she capitalizes on learning opportunities in the every day and uses games and play to get her own children prepared for school and excited about the world around them. Amy is paving the way for a more modern ‘lifestyle of learning’, empowering all parents to take a stronger role in supporting their children’s education.

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.

Amy has worked as a literacy consultant for DC-area charter schools, has shared many tools with educators and parents in both local and national speaking engagements, and she’s currently working on her first book.  On Twitter, she’s @teachmama, tweeting about education, literacy, books, dog-walking, and everything in between.
