Mrs. Karin Carlin

The 2021-2022 school year marks my seventeenth year teaching at Leyden.  I began my career teaching English and now teach five Literacy courses each day. 

I have also sponsored Orchesis, choreographed for musicals, and worked as an ACCESS advisor.  In addition, I serve as the resource teacher for the department. 

I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with our students to become better readers and writers each and every day. I hope that my passion for reading and writing insipires my students as much as they inspire me.
