Amy Mountz

Amy Sofka Mountz, MEd, has over 16 years of experience in early childhood education. In addition to her role as Director of Partnerships and Outreach at Teachstone, Amy also serves as a Pre-K and K-3 CLASS trainer and Making the Most of Classroom Interactions (MMCI) instructor trainer. Amy earned a BA in history from Gettysburg College and an MEd in social foundations and education policy at the University of Virginia. Prior to Teachstone, she managed Virginia’s Reading First project, developing, delivering, and organizing professional development seminars and workshops focused on enhancing teachers’ knowledge of fostering young children’s emergent literacy skills, facilitating reading development, and practicing differentiated instruction. Previously, Amy directed a federally funded study designed to measure the impact of a language and literacy intervention on children’s kindergarten readiness skills. The CLASS tool was used as a measure in this study. Amy co-authored the book Engaging Children with Print: Building Early Literacy Skills through Quality Read-Alouds with Laura Justice. Amy loves all creatures great and small and is raising a small menagerie—which will soon include a colony of bees—at her home in rural Connecticut.
