  • After spending the last 32 of her 43 years in education working in CFISD, Julia Williams Kahla was chosen to be the namesake of Middle School #13, the first of two middle schools that opened in 2005. Better known throughout the district as “Judy,” Kahla spent her first seven years in the district as an English teacher at Cy-Fair and Jersey Village high schools. She also served as a director of instruction at Arnold Middle School for three years, an associate principal for Cypress Creek for three years, as an administrative assistant for personnel services for seven years, and was promoted to assistant superintendent for staff development for 12 years before her retirement in June 2003. She and her husband Harold have two sons, Byron and Grady.
