Mrs. Karin Carlin

The 2022-2023 school year marks my eighteenth 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 am an advisor during Eagle Time.  In addition, I serve as the resource teacher for the department. 

My hope is to not only help my students become stronger readers and writers so they can be successful in school and beyond, but more importantly, to instill a love of reading and writing in my students as well.
