Meet Mx. Webb!

What made you decide to join the Crew at Alma?
Alma is dedicated to delivering high quality educational services within New Bedford, what stuck out to me was the dedication to community collaboration, and the emphasis on modeling service minded behaviors.

What do you hope to contribute to Alma?
I hope to contribute by maintaining a mindset grounded in helpfulness. Helpfulness isn't merely a trait; it's a guiding principle—I'm dedicated to supporting students in their academic journeys, and understand the significance of a collaborative and supportive educational experience.

What teacher made a difference in your life, and how?
The teachers who had the most impact on me were my high school civics teacher and my math studies teacher. In both courses, students were required to formulate logical arguments and express their findings through writing and public speaking. Both educators went above and beyond by hosting office hours outside of school, within the community, and demonstrated a profound investment in their students. They serve as the models I look to when considering the role of educator.

Why did you become involved in education?
I self identify as a life long learner, I enjoy collaborative learning the most. I want to encourage and support other learners and I became an education for this reason.
