Family, Interests, and Activities

Judi has been married for 55+ years to Dr. John C. Munday Jr. . They have three wonderful married children, Brandon, Sarah, and John Sherrod. Their children, their spouses, and their 10 grandchildren are a major joy in her life. She attends Great Bridge Presbyterian Church, Chesapeake, VA. She enjoys growing orchids and is trying to finish work on a Two-Gray Hills rug she began weaving many years ago on an authentic Navajo-style loom. She and her husband enjoy their collection of over 40 authentic Navajo Indian rugs and miniature Indian pots.  John and Judi frequently travel to the Southwest. In 2016, Judi and John  fulfilled the top trip on her bucket list by spending a month in France where her French undergraduate major enabled her to speak fluently during the entire visit!  What a miracle!  

Judi says “In my teaching career, I have sought both to attain excellence and to inspire graduate students, many student teachers, and younger students to reach for excellence — even when it requires overcoming great challenges. It is my desire that young students become self-sufficient and that their parents become fully equipped to carry out their key role in the lives of their children. In working with student teachers and graduate students, I have attempted to instill a love of excellence seasoned with a dose of the “real world” of teaching in public school settings. In my private practice, I work to educate and encourage parents of my clients to learn about their child’s unique needs and to become the primary educators in their children’s lives. These principles underlie all my career objectives.”
