We believe that a child is only a child for a very short time in their life. That in this day and age many children have been forced to grow-up before their time. We would like to preserve and create some of those precious moments of childhood by giving each and every child a chance to be just that. We believe each child has the right to laugh, to sing, to dance, and to be a child.

Substitute Teacher/Staff Member


My name is Rachel Adkins.  I have been educating children for the past eleven years.  I graduated in December 2014 from Miami University in Ohio with my Associates of Applied Science in Pre-Kindergarten Education degree.  I am currently enrolled in Liberty University's on-line program, working toward my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Interdisciplinary Studies.

My husband and I had a small hobby farm in Virginia.  Due to my husband making a career change, we have moved to Maryland.  I have a lot of family in the area, so we are extremely happy about being here.  I am thrilled to be working at Rhymes and Reasons, and I am thankful you have given me the privilege to work with your child.  I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
