Rachel Hull, Reading Specialist
Rachel joined Capital City in February 2015. She is a National Board Certified Teacher (grades 4-8), holds a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from Marshall University and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Asbury University.
With over two decades of experience in education, she has worked as a teacher at Putnam County Schools in West Virginia (where she was awarded Teacher of the Year), as the Lead Coordinator of Elementary Education for the West Virginia Department of Education, as a Literacy Professional Learning Designer, as an Independent Consultant, as a Curriculum Writer, and as a trainer for Project-based Teaching and Learning.
She also developed the “Family pARTy Time” project, where families create art projects with their children and secured several grants to support a K-5 after-school art club because there were no art classes for elementary students in her county.
Rachel moved to Washington, DC from southern Appalachia, where she grew up and lived her whole life. She spends a lot of her time with her family (husband Robert, daughter Hilary, and Schnauzer Emert), making art, or visiting art museums.
