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. Her work has been featured in The Day Newspaper, The Associated Press, Education Talk Radio, CBS 94.9 Radio News Now, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, DifferentBrains.org, Material Psychology, The Journal, The American Consortium for Equity in Education, and City Focus Channel 25. 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’s fervent mission is to make Noah Text® available in ALL print and digital media for ALL readers.
Sarah is also the author of the very imaginative book series The Mystical Years of Franklin Noah Peterson and Zack Early Readers. Noah Text® can be found in Sarah’s book series along with a selection of books published by The Mad Dash and Green Kids Club. Sarah is also 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 speaks at colleges, schools, and various educational organizations regarding her cross-linguistic research, the development of Noah Text®, and how it relates to literacy in this country. She specifically addresses how you can help your child or student become a fluent, confident reader by utilizing this information, along with current evidence-based practices. Her workshops are highly engaging and meaningful.
“Bottom line, I’m going to do everything I can to bring Noah Text® to the adults and kids that need it – to make them strong, confident, curious readers. I believe in it with all my heart. I hope you will join me on this journey. As Mahatma Gandhi said, be the change you want to see in the world.”
