Mr. Dana Haberman
Greetings students, families, friends, and neighbors!
I am super excited to begin my second year as an E1 teacher at Crossroads Montessori! Previously, I taught at Crossroads as the Hamline University STEM coordinator for the I-Zone. It was here at Crossroads that I had the opportunity to student teach 3rd grade, as well as lead several intersession classes and guest teaching moments. I have experience teaching 4th grade in a traditional educational setting, and I have worked with students in outdoor and recreational programs in coordination with the MN department of Natural Resources.
As a lifelong learner and forever curious mind, I hope to bring my previous experiences in digital media (BS, Mass Communications, Bemidji State University) to assist and engage learners with 21st century skills, responsible digitial ethics, and pathways to opportunity when traditional avenues of education are not possible. I work diligently to balance my craft in education (MAT k-6, Hamline University) with the Montessori philosphy and practice (Montessori Training Center of Minnesota).
Importantly, as a resident of our community, I proudly look to serve my neighbors. The North End/Greater Eastside is full of incredible opportunities to which we can all collaborate and contribute towards. With our school and home/community partnerships, I have no doubt that we can build strong, confident leaders of tomorrow.
My interests include science, technology, visual arts, architecture, history, creative expression, and most of all, the great outdoors.
I look forward to another unique and special year ahead. A year full of hard work, respect, taking risks, loving one another, staying positive and open, laughing, and building confidence both academically and socially.
