Co-Founder and Chief Program Officer
Maya Bhattacharjee-Marcantonio is our co-founder and Chief Program Officer. You can think of her as our Principal or Head of School. She was born in Iowa, raised in Harlem, but is rooted in her ancestral home of Kolkata, India. Before launching the Marcy Lab School, Maya was a middle school teacher and school leader at Leadership Prep Bed Stuy, also located on Marcy Avenue in Brooklyn. When Maya is not busy being the heart of the Marcy Lab School, she likes to cook delicious, vegan renditions of her grandmother's favorite Jewish and Indian recipes. She's currently listening to The College Dropout and missing the old Kanye.
