Sarah K. Blodgett
Founder & CEO
Sarah K. Blodgett is a skilled researcher and writer who developed Noah Text® after working with her own child who struggled with reading. Her journey started in 2003 and was heavily influenced by Dr. Miriam Cherkes-Julkowski, who is an expert in rime-based reading instruction. In 2012, Sarah started formally researching and honing her method, which led to her research article The Literacy Crisis: What we can learn from languages throughout the world to solve this problem. The Noah Text® patent pending method has received ongoing recognition from literacy specialists and education professionals since its release in 2016 and was selected as an Innovation Showcase Panelist by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), Education Business Forum, in 2017. Sarah is also the author of the very imaginative book series The Mystical Years of Franklin Noah Peterson and Zack Early Readers and is currently collaborating with New Century Education Foundation and researchers at Michigan State University developing specialized Noah Text® lessons for New Century’s Intelligent Tutoring System. Sarah is continuing to expand Noah Text® technology tools and publications and speaks at colleges, schools, and various educational organizations. Her fervent mission is to make Noah Text® available in ALL print and digital media for ALL readers.
