Hello B.J.  Ward Wildcats and families,

My name is Karla Hypes. I am the art teacher here at B.J. Ward. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and worked in in the graphic design and advertising industry for over 10 years. In 2005, I made a career change to become a teacher. I earned a Master’s Degree in the Art of Education in 2006 and began teaching at B.J. Ward 2006.

I have a daughter who is a law student, a son who is a junior in college and an adorable rescue dog named Dash. For fun, I enjoy gardening, oil painting and spending time with friends and family.
