Dr. Angel Barber Jackson was born in Fort Riley, Kansas and raised in Jeffersonville, Indiana in a home of Christian principles. At the age of nineteen, she was called into ministry and pursued God’s purpose for her life.


Dr. Jackson is a licensed and ordained minister who has preached at various churches since accepting her calling. She is also an Assistant Principal in one of the largest urban school districts in the United States where she has served as a passionate educator for change for over eleven years. As an educator, Dr. Jackson prides herself on building and sustaining positive relationships by supporting and advocating for students, teachers, staff, parents, and all stakeholders in doing what’s best for students. According to Dr. Jackson:


“I believe in the power of change and the power of growth. In order to do so you must be willing to search within yourself and ask yourself, how can I become the leader that I would want to follow? If you are not willing to try something new, embrace something new, and understand the ability of new, then you are not ready for true change. I believe leadership is something that does not occur overnight, it is something that occurs daily, and should be evaluated in order to truly change any system. In order to do so, building positive relationships is essential to change!”


Dr. Jackson lives in Southern Indiana with her husband, Brandon and their two children, Emerald and Braxton.
