Hi! My name is Melinda Chan and I teach 6th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies. This is my first year at the Otis School. Prior to joining BPS, I taught for six years as a Special Education Teacher in Chicago, IL. I was born and raised in Boston and I am so excited to be teaching and working with young students back home. I have taught students across all K-8 grade levels and the best part of my job is witnessing their progress and growth, not only in academics but also in self-awareness and independence. I am excited for the start of a new school year and a new journey with 6th grade!
Hello 6th grade! My name is Mr. Mallios and I will be teaching Math. This is my 6th year teaching and I am looking forward to my first year at the James Otis. We are the oldest grade in the school and we will be role models and leaders to the younger grades. During my time outside of school I enjoy traveling, hiking, beach days, and walking my dog Maggie around town.
