My Story


A Message From the Founder, April Barrett

From Savannah, GA to Jersey City, NJ... From Giessen, Germany (DODS) to Woodbridge, VA, I have had the privilege to reach and teach

many youth in the U.S. and abroad. 

In the past, I've also served as the founder, president, and visionary of a youth mentoring organization, Doves and Eagles of Faith, for over 15 years. I've gleaned great knowledge from the youth that I've worked with. Serving students in grades Pre-K - 12 offered me an opportunity to connect to what helps them to become owners of their learning. As a result of my experiences, I have created this platform to share my passion with you. I look forward to supporting and offering information that will be an "Academic Breeze" for you and all who stop by to explore my pages! 

As a grandmother of two beautiful granddaughters, mother of two intelligent daughters, and a wife to  an awesome husband, I can truly say that I am honored and blessed to have a family who supports and who loves each other immensely.


To be able to inspire, engage others, witness growth, and share my passion of education, mentoring, and coaching is profoundly meaningful and personally rewarding.


When I'm not working with students, administrators, and educators, I enjoy traveling abroad, spending time with family & friends, reading, writing (inspirational thoughts/ideas), creating, developing, and sharing teacher/student

friendly educational activities.
