• The staff of the Mario Umana Academy is a dedicated and diverse group of professionals.  Our faculty hails from all over the world and speaks many different languages.  Our mixture of new and veteran teachers creates a unique blend of experience and enthusiasm as you move from classroom to classroom.  Despite the diversity, there is one thing that the whole staff has in common: Pouring their heart and soul into making sure the students of the school reach new educational heights, and to make sure that the Umana is an active participant in the East Boston community!
