BRAINTREE, MA -- The Catholic Schools Office (CSO) in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston has hired Mary Goslin as Director of Government Programs and Grants. In this role, Goslin, a long-time experienced educator, develops workshops and courses for school leaders on how to access federal programs and services that benefit students and teachers. She will also provide professional development activities for school leaders that support the mission of the Archdiocese and the Catholic Schools Office.
Superintendent Kathy Mears said, “Mary’s passion for wanting to make a difference in the lives of others, combined with her varied experiences in curriculum development, program evaluation, instructional coaching, and special education made her a perfect fit for this position. I am very happy that she has joined our team.”
A native of Quincy, Goslin graduated from Saint Ann School in Quincy and Fontbonne Academy in Milton. She completed her bachelor’s degree at Suffolk University, Boston, and obtained her master’s degree from UMass Lowell in School Administration. Goslin holds a Massachusetts educator license, in addition to being a licensed principal. She currently lives in Norwell.
Prior to arriving at the CSO, Goslin worked in the dual role of teacher and assistant principal at St. Brendan School in Dorchester. Before that position, she was a Literacy Team member for Hingham Public Schools, and worked closely with the Special Education Department. Said Goslin, “My success as an educator stems from the belief that every student can learn. I’m passionate about meeting the learning needs of individual students and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity in this role to make contributions to Catholic schools on a broad level.”
Part of Goslin’s role is to help schools acquire Title funds and then use those resources effectively. Title funds provide services from the federal government to assist students and teachers.
Said Goslin, “Typically, in the past, children who needed specialized instruction felt that they had to go outside Catholic schools. With these funds, Catholic schools can more easily provide students what they need in a Catholic setting.”
She continued, “This will open doors to students and allow our schools to welcome more students who are on educational plans.”
