Maya Baba, Executive Assistant
May 26, 2022
“Lynbrook is a good way for me to keep in touch with kids and be around kids at school,” Executive Assistant Maya Baba said.
Baba first worked at a human resources company, then took a break from working to raise her children who attended Lynbrook before working again after her children went to college. Familiar with the school from volunteering as a parent, Baba was offered a senior clerical job at the front office, which she started in 2010. She switched between multiple front office positions, starting from Senior Clerical Assistant, moving onto being an AP secretary and finally landing a position as Executive Assistant.
“Mrs. Maya Baba, the Executive Assistant to the Principal, heart of the Lynbrook staff, and font of wisdom will be leaving us at the end of June,” Principal Maria Jackson said in a Week Ahead email. “As principal, I cannot fathom life at Lynbrook without her by my side.”
Of the projects she was involved in at Lynbrook, Baba is most proud of initiating and maintaining the Lynbrook Excellence in Education Foundation which supports and funds programs like providing new technology, construction, and music department resources. From talking with Mrs. Jackson and students in the Student Voice group for student opinions to watching the school sports teams’ games, Baba has loved interacting with many of the groups on campus.
“You feel more connected,” Baba said. “You have relationships with people. There’s a broader range of people that you can meet and talk with every day, and it’s just fun to connect with people on that level.”
