April Briley

Joseph (Joe) and April Briley are high school sweethearts and have been married for twenty-three years. They live in Greenville, NC, with their three children. Marisa (graduated homeschool), Brandon (now in public high school), and Makayla (currently homeschooled). SSG Joseph Briley is a full-time soldier serving with the North Carolina National Guard. April has enjoyed being the full-time teacher of their three children, currently just the youngest. The family spends time serving in various areas of their community.

April initially found out about homeschooling at the end of her fifth grade year, when a friend was pulled out of school to be homeschooled for middle school. When April was pregnant with their first child, the Lord directed them to homeschool. She found out that a few friends were homeschooling their children and connected with them to find out more information. Shortly thereafter, the family joined their local Pitt County homeschool support group to gain more information, support, and connections on their homeschooling journey. April has served in numerous roles in local support groups and enjoys continuing that service with NCHE.
