From the time Caroline Carlin arrived on the campus of Our Lady of Perpetual Help just one year ago, she had a plan to promote educational excellence as the academic dean. Ms. Carlin said she embraces a healthy tension between collaboration and challenge. As she completes her doctorate degree, she has had widespread exposure to 21st-century pedagogy that compels her to take a new look at the world in which our children take part. 

Officials said when working with students and parents Ms. Carlin displays a commitment to and practice of ethical action. At the core of everything she does is respect for her fellow teachers and students and a fierce sense of the value of the individual. Those who work with Ms. Carlin said they have a sense of shared responsibility. As a result, things get done and done very well.

Her philosophy of education and leadership is rooted in the belief that to teach a child requires a holistic understanding of that child and a concern for their well-being. This paired with the belief that children will reach the bar that you set for them makes for a challenging yet loving environment that inspires students to reach their highest potential.  Students who are challenged and loved can figure out their needs and wants and are best equipped to contribute to the society where they will live, said officials.

“Growing up Catholic and attending Catholic schools was the single most transformative experience in my life," said Ms. Carlin.  “During this challenging time, I rely on the principles and values instilled in me by my teachers in Catholic school such a perseverance, compassion, and an unwavering drive to help others."
