About the teacher


I am Ms Karla. I will be your child's teacher this school year. I have been teaching at Guiding Star since the fall of 2001, during that time I have taught predominately 3/4s but have also had PreK classes. The last several years I have also been fortunate enough to serve as the Assistant Director. 

I have been married for 30 years to my best friend, Randall O’Dell. We have 2 sons, Jon and Aaron. Jon is serving in the Army, he and his wife, Lynda, and their son, Vincent are currently stationed in Germany. Aaron is currently in the Army with plans this fall to get out, move home and go to college.
