OLMC Dean of Faculty Arlene Zagarino Honored by Lakeland Hills YMCA as Educator of the Year


The Lakeland Hills YMCA will be hosting its Annual Dinner & Awards Presentation at The Mansion at Mountain Lakes on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019. OLMC is thrilled that our Dean of Faculty, Arlene Zagarino, is being honored as an Educator of the Year.

It is especially fitting that an organization whose stated mission is “to put Christian principles into practice through programs and services that promote youth development, healthy living and social responsibility for all” would recognize Mrs. Zagarino, a committed Catholic educator whose dedication and hard work has been transforming children’s lives since 1981. She began teaching in the Paterson Diocese in 1994 and became a member of the OLMC faulty in 2009. In her current role as Dean of Faculty, Mrs. Zagarino provides crucial support and mentoring to our teachers.

In many ways a school is its faculty, and our teachers would not be the highly trained experts they are without Mrs. Zagarino’s daily influence. Thanks to her gentle leadership, these bright, eager minds flourish into committed professionals with a passion for learning and an abiding love for their students. The OLMC community has been indelibly marked and elevated by Mrs. Zagarino’s efforts, and we are thrilled that she is receiving the recognition she deserves. Congratulations to our very own Educator of the Year!
