  Ms. Clare Hanagan | Director of Instruction

During my career in the Boston Public Schools, I have been a general education teacher, a special education teacher, a literacy coach, and an administrator. One of my greatest loves is assisting a student, of any age, to become a successful reader. Every day that you can be a part of a student's positive learning experiences is a good day!

 ▶ Ms. Anita Moore | Assistant Principal
Hello Jackson Mann Family,
I am a native Bostonian, born and raised in Roxbury. This year I started my 30th year as part of the Boston Public School system. During most of these years, my teaching home has been at the Jackson Mann School (25 years). I taught physical education and health before moving into administration. Both I enjoy immensely. 

The Jackson Mann community is and has been a wonderful environment to learn and grow for myself and the many students who have been educated here.  It is most rewarding to see our students grow, in knowledge and independence, from elementary to middle school, as they prepare to be successful in high school. There is no greater feeling than to have students visit and tell of their success in high school and college. This is something I hope for every student at the Jackson Mann K-8 School.
 Dr. Simone Kotraba | Assistant Principal
Hello students and families. My name is Simone Kotraba and I am an Assistant Principal at the Jackson-Mann K-8 School. I was born in Jamaica W.I., but immigrated to the United States as a teenager. Upon arriving to this country, my first hometown was Brooklyn, NY. I can proudly say that I am a product of the New York City Public Schools. 
I'm now entering into my second year as an Assistant Principal at the Jackson Mann, where I hope to continue to make a positive impact in students' social, emotional, and academic learning achievements. I love working with the students, families, and the amazing Jackson-Mann team!
▶ Mr. Andy Tuite | Principal
On September 7,1977, I took charge of my first classroom as a teacher at Sacred Heart High School in Weymouth, MA. For 40 years, I have been lucky enough to teach and be taught by children and families from Boston and Brockton and Weymouth and Quincy. I never wanted to do anything else! Well, I did want to be a Beatle or a Green Bay Packer, but those are stories for another day. Only one job is more important than teaching and that is parenting, and I've been lucky enough to do that, too, for 33 years. Every day that I can be with children is a great day, and I thank all of you - all of the families, who've trusted your most precious possessions, your children, to me. I look forward in my 41st year of teaching, beginning on September 7, 2017 (amazing, right?) and to another awesome year at the Jackson Mann!  As Malcolm X said, "Education is the passport to the future for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." Welcome back!
  Boston College's art museum has relocated to 2101 Comm Ave. They have programs for elementary age children the second Saturday of every month. Admission is free. Some programs require preregistration. More information on the museum is here: www.bc.edu/artmuseum  Lots of wonderful and worthwhile events at the Harvard Ed Portal.
