Irish-born, nature-loving, life-long learner, Judy Byrne believes if she’s not living on the edge she’s taking up too much space. Just when her two great children have moved into their adult life and all is well, she is ready for new growth and meaning. When she is not hiking, biking, paddling or playing Scrabble, Judy teaches French and German at a girls’ school in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She is passionate about language and is giving Dzongkha her best shot.
She is honoured to have been chosen as a 2015 BCF teacher and is looking forward to her work and her new friends in Bhutan.
