My favorite saying from Jody was when a child came to school with striped pants or shirt she would say "Looks like you have a bad case of the stripes". To this day it makes me smile. She was a fantastic teacher and a gem of a person. My daughter did not have an easy transition into kindergarten which meant Jody's job was cut out for her. But Jody smoothed the way and Mika ultimately thrived under her tutelage . Jody told me that Mika made her a better teacher. I think she said that just to make me feel better and it worked. That's the kind of person she was. She always greeted her class with a smile. And her smile was so infectious. She was one of kind, a true gem. Morley school is, and never will be the same without her. My heart felt condolences. The Orszulak family

Our dear Jody was a master teacher who adored her students and families, a devoted colleague who was selfless and a lifelong learner, an incredibly supportive and loving wife and mother whose family was always a priority, and a loyal friend to all. It was truly a gift to be in her life during my career in West Hartford as her teacher leader and friend at Morley School. Sending peace and love to Doug, Graham and Samantha and her extended family. She will never be forgotten. Ellen Stokoe

We have such wonderful memories of Mrs. Monroe. One thing I will always remember is how she sang her own happy birthday song to each child on their birthday. My kids still sing this and call it Mrs. Monroe’s Happy Birthday song. What a wonderful, loving woman she was. We are so blessed to have had her in our lives and she will be forever remembered, and fondly missed.

So very sorry to hear the news of Mrs Monroe's passing. She was so wonderful as my daughters kindergarten teacher. (17 years ago now) She made a lasting impression on her and she would often speak of her time in Kindergarten. We fondly remember when our two birds hatched a baby and Mrs. Monroe adopted it for her classroom! She nurtured it and it lived with her for many years. She is a great lady and will be sorely missed by all that new her.
