Martin Haberman– Biographic Sketch

Over the past fifty years Martin Haberman has developed more teacher education programs, which have prepared more teachers for children in poverty than anyone in the history of American Education. The most widely known of his programs was the National Teacher Corps, which was based on his intern program in Milwaukee. He is an advisor for alternative certification programs around the country and has developed effective ways of bringing more minorities into teaching.  His interviews for selection of teachers who will be successful with children in poverty are used in 300 cities throughout the country. His principal selection interview is currently used in 25 cities. Both interviews have on-line pre-screeners that can be accessed nationally to so that school districts can use research-based tools for selecting  educators. The Star Principal and Star Teacher Selection Interview trainings are based on his research and book publications now available from the Haberman Educational Foundation in Houston. Currently, his developmental efforts are focused on helping to resolve the crises in urban schools serving seven million at- risk students by helping these school district “grow their own”  carefully selected teachers and principals.

Professor Haberman grew up in New York City. His formal education includes bachelors and masters degrees in sociology from Brooklyn College and New York University. These were followed with a second masters and doctorate in Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. Rhode Island College (1989) and the State University of New York (2001) have awarded him Honorary Doctorates of Human Letters.

In addition to an extremely long list of publications (8 books, 50 chapters, 200 articles and papers) and numerous research studies, Professor Haberman served six years as the Editor of the Journal of Teacher Education, and eleven years as dean in the University of Wisconsin trying to apply the successes of extension in rural America to the problems of  life in urban areas.

Professor Haberman has served on eleven editorial boards. He holds several awards for his writing, a Standard Oil Award for Excellence in Teaching, a special award from The Corporation for Public Broadcasting and an AACTE Medal for offering a Hunt Lecture as well as the Pomeroy Award. He is a Distinguished Member of ATE and a Laureate of Kappa Delta Pi. In 1995 the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents named him a Distinguished Professor.

In November of 2004, Dr.Haberman was awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award in Education at Columbia University.  In March 2005 the Haberman Educational Foundation  published his latest book: Star Teachers: the Ideology and Best Practice of Effective Teachers of Diverse Children and Youth in Poverty. In 2009 the AERA gave him the Legacy Award for Lifetime Achievements in Teacher Education.
