Co-Founder and Executive Director
Reuben Ogbonna is the co-founder and Executive Director of the Marcy Lab School. Born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, his family is split between Imo State, Nigeria and Shreveport, Louisiana. Prior to founding the Marcy Lab School, Reuben coached teachers across New York City as a Director at Teach For America. He recently had his first child but one could argue that he has been a dad on the inside for several years already. When he is not trying to dismantle the higher education system, he is smoking briskets on his Big Green Egg while playing afrobeats and Black cookout music. He is currently listening to African Giant by Burna Boy.
