Objective

In my teaching career, I have sought to both attain excellence and to inspire my 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. I am committed to educational reform, starting with my personal interest of special education. I have been a long-time follower of the Center for Educational Reform as well as literature from the Charter School movement.

Married 49 years to Dr. John C. Munday Jr. Three wonderful married children, Brandon, Sarah, and Sherrod. I attend Great Bridge Presbyterian Church, Chesapeake, VA. I garden, enjoy flower arranging, raise singing canaries, and weave rugs on an authentic Navajo-style rug loom. Each year, we travel, usually to western states. Our children, their spouses, and our 10 grandchildren are a major joy in my life.
