My name is Judy Kainer. My family moved to the United States when I was 9 years old, and I did not speak any English when I arrived at Hewitt Elementary in 4th grade! I went to Midway and then I graduated from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor. I taught 1st grade at Woodway Elementary for several years before I became pregnant with my son. I decided to stay home with my son and then with my daughter. Once my son started school, I decided to go back to teaching. I worked at Castleman Creek Elementary for 3 years then transferred back to Woodway elementary. Then I was at Speegleville and River Valley as the ESL teacher! Now I am here at Woodgate. I know that we will have a wonderful year!! I can't wait to meet you! I love teaching and I hope that you will love school!
