Mark Anastopoulos

Hi, my name is Mark Anastopoulos and I am an art teacher here at the Bailey.  Born and raised in Lowell I graduated from college with a degree in Commercial Art. I am married to Nancy, have two daughters Kathryn and Kristen, along with our golden retriever Lucy.  After working in the field for ten years I went back to college to fulfill my dream of being an educator.  I came to the Lowell Public Schools in 1993. My first year I worked at the Moody and Leblanc Schools, and at the Sullivan Middle School from 1994 – 2019. This is my first year here at the Bailey. I love elementary school students and greatly appreciate the joy and energy they bring to the classroom. There is no greater reward than to see a student take on a challenge and accomplish that goal.

Melanie McManmon

My name is Melanie McManmon. I grew up in Lowell and now live in Dracut with my husband, Jim, and two daughters, Caelin and Maeve. Along with my family, I enjoy watching my girls participate in sports, hanging out by the pool, skiing, snowmobiling, and practicing Brazilian jiu jitsu. I graduated from Saint Anselm College with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and from Regis College with a master’s degree in Elementary Education.

I began working for Lowell Public Schools in 2006 as a 1st grade teacher at the Bailey. I loved watching how much my 1st graders grew during a school year. However, after 8 years in a classroom, I decided that I wanted to change my role within the school. I chose to pursue my certification in PE and was lucky enough to stay at the Bailey as the gym teacher. Now, I have the chance to see how much growth all of our students make during their elementary years.
