Amy Mascott

A Reading Specialist and former high school English teacher, Amy Mascott is a Literacy Consultant, working with area schools to help train their Reading Teachers and design their Literacy Programs. She also tutors students, ranging from pre-K through grade 12, several evenings a week; she assesses students’ reading abilities, and she creates a goal-driven plan to help them meet with success in English and Reading.

She views her position as a stay-at-home mom with a strong background in education as an opportunity to help out her pals by sharing with them some of the “insider secrets” of teaching to use on their own children.

Hoping to create an easy way for parents to interact with the bloggers they read and for parents–and teachers–to share their super-cool ideas without going through the trouble of starting a blog, Amy developed we teach. A sort of ‘virtual teachers’ lounge’, we teach has grown quickly and steadily in a very short time, and is a place for everyone to learn, share, and grow.
