Endorsement from Carolyn Walker Hopp, Ph.D. Associate Professor UCF ~ Retired
“I have worked with many professionals for more than 30 years of teaching, and Alecia stands out as one of the very best. It is not only her passion for teaching, but also her desire to always strive to be better, to know more, and to pursue excellence in all that she does, which she passes on to her students.”
Endorsement from a Parent- Karen Peters
“Dr. Blackwood’s teaching style is not a style, it’s a culture, a way of being that students and educators alike benefit from academically, socioculturally, and spiritually. Students in her classes do not simply learn, they gain an inner-standing of their connectedness to each other, the instructor, and the seen and unseen universe around us.”
Endorsement from a Teacher-Mrs. J. Quarterman
As a newer teacher, Dr. Blackwood always offered feedback that I could understand and see my way through. She didn’t just give me advice or suggestions and stop there. She also provided resources and steps to work through and help me grow. Over the past 8 years, I have had the privilege to learn from one of the best educators I know. I still refer to the advice, suggestions, and answered questions she has given me as a parent and an educator. Her knowledge and skills are invaluable to anyone wanting to learn.
Becoming An Ubuntu Responsive Educator
Written By Dr. Alecia Blackwood
The book provides an overview of a teacher’s journey from the USA to Southern Africa, seeking to understand what it means to teach in the spirit of ubuntu. Through an ethnographic study of the teacher’s lived experiences, the author unpacks what ubuntu means in the context of education while showing how the process of cultivating one’s humanity is anchored in transformative learning.
