Faven Habte is the Science Instructional Support Leader for Network 16 at Chicago Public Schools

“I see Surge as a space of healing and growth where I can show up as my authentic self, express critical hope and fight for students. As a fellow, I hope to build community and be renewed by the talents and dreams of a cohort that holds similar values and operates with love and understanding. I want to help create a responsive education system that centers the well-being, joy, and healing of our young people and their communities. Ultimately, I believe that Surge will help me develop the leadership skills to continue elevating the voices, ideas, and stories that are overlooked on the path to equity.”
