Ms. Amanda Bambury
Instructor in Humanities
Amanda Bambury was raised at the base of Pikes Peak in Colorado. She first experienced the beauty of Catholic education at the University of Notre Dame, where she studied French and Italian literature. Formed by the Congregation of Holy Cross, she came to fervently believe Bl. Basile Moreau's assertion that "the mind must not be cultivated at the expense of the heart," and she discerned a vocation to become a Catholic educator.
She enjoys leading students to understand how great works of literature can teach us how to live well and be more fully human. Her favorite novels, which have done just that, are Se questo è un uomo by Primo Levi and La Dame aux camélias by Alexandre Dumas fils.
Ms. Bambury earned her B.A. and M.A. in French Literature at the University of Notre Dame. She teaches literature.
