The Head of Ravenclaw is a Professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who is in charge of looking after and disciplining the students of their House, Ravenclaw. The Head of House also serves as a Professor of a Subject, presumably a more academic subject for a Head of Ravenclaw. Most, if not all, of the heads of Ravenclaw house attended Hogwarts and were sorted into Ravenclaw during their attendance at the school, such as Filius Flitwick. It is unknown how a professor would be elected to the post, but it's possible that the headmaster chooses a professor who embodies the qualities of house founder Rowena Ravenclaw such as intelligence, wisdom, and wit.
The first Head of Ravenclaw House was the famous co-founder of Hogwarts, Rowena Ravenclaw; the only other known Head of House was Filius Flitwick.
