What parents are saying

A huge shout out to Hoot for being so kind and generous! I have worked for 3 different online teaching companies and this is by far my favorite. From the interview process to working with the technical team and all the employees, kids, and parents….it’s been incredible!

As a 25-year veteran teacher, reading specialist, and mom of a 14-year old, I love literacy education and finding innovative ways to bring daily reading to all children. Hoot is a gem of a program allowing just that! The smart technology and creativity make it an excellent way for teachers to impact children beyond their classroom walls.

Working at Hoot Reading is great! I really enjoyed working with my students, who are so bright and lovely. It’s been so rewarding to see my students improve and feel more confident about their reading. It’s a pleasure to be on board with an amazing company.
