Lakeisha Bearer

Lakeisha designs and facilitates Write Local’s elementary school workshops.

Lakeisha’s desire to work with Write Local youth stems from her own background: early on, she was a creative participant in backyard plays that she helped to imagine and design. She aims to bring creative expression to writers in Write Local’s workshops.

Plus, with an Elementary Certification for K-6 and teaching experience in Northern Virginia schools, she is formally trained to bring out the very best in students.

Lakeisha is a resident of Ligonier where she lives with her husband and their adorable Bernese Mountain Dog, Dozer.
