Welcome to Earhart Elementary School! My name is Ryan Habben and I am looking forward to fantastic year and getting to work with such a fantastic 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 was recently selected as the principal at Earhart and couldn’t be more thrilled for this new opportunity. Earhart has a phenomenal group of teachers and staff that I am looking forward to working with, and it also has an amazing group of students. I look forward to getting to know all of them and their families throughout the year!
