Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so excited to start a new school year and be your teacher this year! 

A little bit about myself: My name is Karye Maine. I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a degree in Elementary Education. I am ESL and GT certified. This will be my 17th year teaching. I have taught first grade for 10 years at LaVega(9 yrs) and Connally(1 yr). This will be my 7th year to teach Kindergarten at LaVega.

I have been married for 6 years to my wonderful husband Bryan. He teaches history and religion courses at MCC, UMHB and Baylor. We have a 4 year old son, Jaxon, who attends LaVega, and a baby on the way in February. We have 2 dogs, Sadie and Rylie, and 2 frogs, Dory and Fiona.

If you need anything this year, please don’t hesitate to call, email, text or write me a note. I look forward to working with you this year!
