About Us


Rachel Blumenthal received a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education, and a Masters in Reading Education from Boston University. She also holds a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Family Literacy through Penn State.

Her professional experience includes several years in Massachusetts and Virginia public schools, where she worked with several extra-curricular reading clubs in addition to being a reading specialist.

Rachel is a passionate believer in the developmental benefits of reading to young children. Working with children and promoting literacy are two of her favorite things to do, and she’s glad to have found a career that lets her do both.

Rachel lives in Springfield, Virginia with her husband, Philip, and children, Seth and Maya.
