Lexi Streitmatter

Writing Instructor

at The Lantern English Co.




Homeschooled K-12th, oldest of seven siblings, Follower of Christ; ultimately motivated by a desire to live for Jesus; I love traveling, a good cup of French press coffee, classic novels, crisp autumn mornings, and laughing with friends.


Ever since I was little, when people would ask me about my favorite school subject or hobby, I would say reading and writing. I was always making up stories to tell my friends or, as I got older, writing passionate persuasive essays to convince the reader of my beliefs. While I have a passion for writing, I also enjoy editing which results in my being called a “grammar police” by my family.

I moved to Georgia from Illinois with my family in January of 2014. I graduated high school in 2016 and currently have a cleaning business, teach a writing class to 7 home schooled boys, and volunteer in a refugee community near me. I also love to travel and, during the summer especially, I feel that I am constantly living out of a suitcase. In my spare time, I love finding good coffee shops, trying new recipes, journaling, spending time with friends and family, or simply curling up with a good book.

Most importantly, I am a follower of Jesus Christ. Everything from my day to day actions to my life’s goals are all impacted by my desire to glorify Jesus in everything I do.
