Joanna also traveled extensively throughout Europe as a chaperone for her high school students. After retiring from the Muhlenberg County school system, her love for teaching and dedication to helping young people led her to a job teaching driver's education at the Earl C. Clement Job Corp where she enjoyed helping troubled youths. Joanna inspired generations of students with her enthusiasm both in and out of the classroom and with her boundless energy. At last count, she had taught over 3,000 students.
