After teaching elementary school for 40 years, Judy retired in 2005. Then she really hit the road of volunteerism! Tutoring 1st & 2nd graders in reading; teaching a music workshop series for 1st graders; lots of church projects-including collecting supplies for school kits for Lutheran World Relief; and participating in The Burbank Arts For All Foundation from its inception ten years ago. In April 2016, Judy was presented with the BAFA Champion For the Arts award. The prestigious award was presented during BAFA’s Gala held in The Globe Theatre at Universal Studios. Former students and parents were among the guests for the fund raiser.
