Welcome to Earhart Elementary School! My name is Ryan Habben and I am looking forward to a fantastic year and getting to work with such an awesome group of students, teachers, and parents.

I was born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana. I am very proud to be a alumni of Purdue University where I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I started my educational career in Portage Township Schools teaching fourth grade at South Haven Elementary. During my time there I started work on my Master’s Degree in Education Administration, also from Purdue.  I moved back to Lafayette and continued teaching fourth grade at Mintonye Elementary in the Tippecanoe School Corporation. I felt a calling to want to continue to have the ability to educate children, but also work in a leadership role. I was hired in 2014 to be the Assistant Principal at Wea Ridge Elementary and thoroughly enjoyed getting to work with the many students at that school. 

I became the principal at Earhart in 2016 and have really enjoyed the past two years here. Earhart has a phenomenal group of teachers and staff that are so much fun to work with. More than that our students and families are top-notch. I am looking forward to another amazing school year!
