I am Lakesha Alexander, and I am excited to be apart of the Hope Charter Leadership Academy Family! I am currently a North Carolina Teaching Fellow at North Carolina State University studying Middle Grades Education with a concentration in Science. I have always enjoyed working with children and helping others and knew at a young age that I wanted to become a teacher. Teaching has become a part of my life and I don't take it for granted; I embrace the responsibility of helping the community mold a child into a future leader. My extracurricular activities include, but are not limited to, reading, mentoring, DIY crafts, and running my own small business.
