Haben Ghebregergish


Haben is a proud educator of 9 years and a lifelong learner. She has had the distinct pleasure of teaching high school mathematics in Detroit and St. Paul. As a learning facilitator at the High School for Recording Arts, she delved into her passion for social justice mathematics. Her student-centered and problem-driven classes allow students to take ownership of their learning by exploring topics that are important to them, including the impact of the Black Lives Movement, billionaires in our society, and owning a business. She also loves engaging students in learning through travel and has collaborated with colleagues and students to organize trips to Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and New York City. Through these experiences, she cultivated a deeper understanding of diverse cultures and perspectives.

Haben is deeply committed to community empowerment and positive change. She is a coach and mentor to youth advocates in two organizations. The first is Bridgemakers, a nonprofit, youth-led organization that works on issues such as education reform and economic justice for marginalized Minnesotans ages 14-25. Bridgemakers’ most impactful victories were passing a law that made high school students in Minnesota newly eligible for unemployment benefits and helping students access $33 million in federal Pandemic Unemployment funds. The second organization is Reconnect Rondo, whose mission is to revitalize the Rondo community of St. Paul, a once thriving black neighborhood that was devastated by the construction of I-94.

Haben is a proud alumnus of University of Chicago and Hamline University. In her new role as
Professional Learning Facilitator, Haben is excited to continue her commitment to education,
community engagement, and experiential learning.
