Karla Dyess, Principal
Karla Dyess was born and raised in Arvada, Colorado. After graduating high school, Karla attended the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colorado and received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 1988.
Karla taught fifth and sixth grades for five years at Betty Adams Elementary School in Westminster, Colorado. During that time she also received her master’s degree in Instruction and Curriculum from the University of Colorado in Denver.
Karla has a passion for education and helping children, parents and teachers. Karla takes joy in her profession and strives to make a positive difference in children’s lives daily. One of the reasons Karla entered into education as a profession was because of a special elementary teacher that influenced her own life. She hopes the students’ lives she touches will also be inspired to fulfill their own dreams.
Karla is happily married to Jarrod and they are the proud parents of three daughters who are the products of Broken Arrow Schools. In her free time, Karla enjoys watching her daughters participate in activities, family time, running marathons, working in her flower garden and taking vacations to see her family in Colorado.
