I cannot see the Web Part Tools when I open a site I'm converting from 2010 to 2012.  My coworkers can see this tab no problem.  I have full control of this site so i should be able to see this tab.

I'm assuming you mean SharePoint 2013.

Do you have the page in edit mode and do you have a web part selected?

Are you using the same browsers?  Are you on a 32-bit browser?  If you go to Site Settings - Site Permissions, you can click the Check Permissions button in the ribbon and check your own permissions on the site.  What does it return?
