About the Principal

My name is Ryan Haven and I am privileged to be starting my sixth year as the principal for Edenvale Elementary School.  I am originally from Maryland, where I spent my early years working hard during the school year in Potomac, Md., while relaxing 'hard' at Ocean City, Md. during my summers.  I attended Cornell University in Ithaca, NY where I graduated with a BA Cum Laude in government.  For the past 22 years I have lived on the West Coast, mostly in the Bay Area.  I began my career in education as a bilingual teacher at a Title 1 school in Hayward, CA.  After teaching for nine years, I have spent the past seven years as an Elementary School Principal.  I am honored to be a part of such a caring and dedicated staff here at Edenvale, and I am committed to our vision for our students to not only become college-bound and career ready, but also life-long learners, 21st century leaders, and productive global citizens.  I just love kids and watching them advance towards their dreams. When I am not working, I enjoy drinking coffee while chatting with friends, spending time with my wife and two girls, watching movies, or just soaking in the California sunshine.  If there is ever anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to call me (408) 227-7060 ext 314201, email me (, or set up an appointment to meet in person.
