Dr. Almore-Randle was born in Jackson, Mississippi where she attended elementary school and later attended and graduated from Tougaloo High School. In 1951, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics from Tougaloo College. As the first of eight children in the Almore family to graduate from college, she set the pattern which the others would follow.
Two years after graduating from Tougaloo College she moved to Pasadena, California where she continued her education at Cal State University Los Angeles and the University of Southern California where she earned her Masters of Science degree in Education in 1971.
She later earned a Doctorate degree in Education from Nova Southeastern University in 1997. In 1956, Dr. Randle was hired to teach at Jackson Elementary School in Altadena, California. The principal rejected her using the fact that there were no Black students at the school. She was then assigned to become a special education teacher where she excelled.
