Lakesha Mitchell

English/Language Arts Teacher

I was born in Charleston, SC and grew up in Hollywood, SC, a small rural town in Charleston County. I currently live in Columbia, SC with my two sons. For as long as I can remember I have always loved reading and writing. I enjoy many other hobbies such as running, kickboxing and traveling.

I studied English and Radio Broadcasting at South Carolina State University. I received my Master’s Degree in Business from Webster University. I began my teaching career in 1999. During that time, I taught mostly at the middle school level in a traditional school setting. Teaching never grows dull! It always seems to be one adventure after another.

I began my transition to virtual school environment in 2016. I love the collaborative environment at SC Whitmore School and the fact that students are able to work at a pace that benefits them.
