Dear Jackson Mann K-8 School Community:

I am pleased to announce that I have appointed Anita Moore as principal of the Jackson Mann K-8 School, effective July 1, 2018. Ms. Moore will take over leadership of the school from Principal Andy Tuite, who will retire at the end of this school year after serving as the leader of the Jackson Mann for the past nine years.

Ms. Moore, who has served for the last 11 years as assistant principal of the Jackson Mann, is excited to step into the role of school leader and continue the great work happening at the school.

A lifelong Boston resident and product of the Boston Public Schools (BPS), Ms. Moore has served the students and families of this city as a BPS educator for 30 years. She began her career as an elementary school physical education and health teacher at the Jackson Mann. She also spent time as an administrator at the William H. Ohrenberger School.

Ms. Moore holds a bachelor’s degree in education and a master’s in health education, both from Boston University, and a Master of School Administration from Bridgewater State University. 

On behalf of the extended BPS community, I want to thank Mr. Tuite for his 18 years of service to the Boston Public Schools, including his dedicated leadership at the Jackson Mann and within the wider district. He has a long legacy of working to improve the academic outcomes of Boston’s youth and over the years he has helped build a more inclusive and welcoming school culture by expanding programs for students in the autism strand, the inclusion strand, and the Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) Program. Through the BPS extended learning time, he increased enrichment opportunities for all Jackson Mann students by partnering with the West End Boys and Girls Club. During his nine years at the school, he found ways to provide additional resources to Jackson Mann students by adding and improving community partnerships with organizations such a Boston Partners in Education, Apprentice Learning, and Franciscan Children’s.

This is an exciting time for your school community. Please join me in welcoming Ms. Moore to the Jackson Mann and know that your school has the full support of the entire BPS community behind you as we work together to ensure educational success for all of our students.

Tommy Chang, Ed.D.
