WAUWATOSA -- A Wauwatosa teacher was honored Tuesday for her contributions in the classroom.

Judy LaFond, an instructor at St. Jude the Apostle School, was surprised with Mayfair's "Most Outstanding" teacher award.

Not only did the award come as a shock, but LaFond said since she is retiring this year it feels like the perfect culmination of the time she spent with "her kids."

"For me, receiving this is such an honor because i have spent my entire life with children and they are the ones who complete me," she said. "Not having kids of my own, I feel like every day I'm in my classroom, I feel like I spend with my own kids."
 
In addition to the honor, LaFond also received a $500 gift card.
