Ms. Ndebumadu is a Second Grade Lead Teacher at the Frederick Douglass Campus.
What made you decide to join the Crew at Alma?
Alma cares about the health of their students and their teachers. It also reminded me of home and my college campus. I’m from a small town and I got that feeling. I definitely don’t want to be in the big city anymore. The atmosphere was very calming and encouraging. The closeness was evident, the small population allows you to do wonders with your students, a community where I belong is where I want to be. Ms. DeLoach was also great and her passion ignites the passion in others. My dream is a dream that is no longer deferred.
What do you hope to contribute to Alma?
Southern hospitality and students who are academically high but also aware of injustices and other narratives outside of the white majority/supremacy narrative.
What teacher made a difference in your life, and how?
Dr. Walker. She pushed me to be more aware of different narratives. She allowed me to be myself and talk about things that I was passionate about. She is still involved in my life mostly by social media but her advice is worth it and timeless.
Where did you go to college? What did you like about your college?
Converse College. It was an all women’s college so we were pushed to go outside our comfort level on a daily basis. The sense of community and the small population. The things I did at Converse I probably wouldn’t have done at the College of Charleston or another co-ed.
What is your favorite food?
Rice (different kinds) and chicken.
What is your favorite book?
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines
