Mrs. Evelyn Barrett

Born in Dallas and raised in Mesquite, Texas, where she graduated from Mesquite High School, Evelyn Barrett continued her education at Allstate Business College and Mississippi State University, where she studied Business Accounting and Early Childhood Development. While living in Mississippi for 16 years she successfully launched the Little Lamb Day Care Center, where she provided quality after-school childcare, tutorial services, mentoring and computer technology. During her five years of business Little Lamb partnered with AJFC Head Start where she had the privilege of traveling to Atlanta, Georgia for Special Quest, the Hilton early Head Start training program with the Somona State University training workshop designed to strengthen the inclusion of young children with disabilities and families. In addition to raising a family with her husband Jim, both she and Jim are currently on the ministerial staff at Gospel Tabernacle Church in Dallas, Texas. When not ministering, Evelyn can be found knee deep in her favorite autobiography or enjoying her hobby of hand fashioning custom jewelry. With her undying love of working with children, Evelyn emphasizes, “Working at Founders Classical Academy with the staff and students have brought me great joy as I see the success stories in pursuit of the good, the true, and the beautiful in every person.”
