Odyssey Elementary School Principal
Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Kris Levi
As the new Principal at Odyssey Elementary School, it is an honor to be a Comet! I look forward to fulfilling our school’s Mission and Vision to help our students truly shine.
This will be my 21st year in education, and I am fortunate that all of them have been right here in District 49. I began my career as a fifth grade teacher and was lucky to help open Springs Ranch Elementary School for its first year. During my eleven years, I was a fifth grade teacher, first grade teacher, second grade teacher, Technology Specialist, and third grade teacher. For the next five years, I was a Technology Specialist at Meridian Ranch Elementary, where I taught kindergarten through fifth grade students computer and 21st Century Skills. Then, I was a part of the team that opened Bennett Ranch Elementary School, and I served in an administrative role at that location for the past four years.
With all of these roles in different locations, I have come to truly appreciate the journey that our students make in the elementary setting, the commitment that drives elementary staff to help students in their first stages of schooling, and the possibilities that can be fulfilled as a positive hub for the community. As a Leader in Me school, I look forward to working with students and adults alike to grow the leadership potential for all individuals at Odyssey Elementary.
Not only do I live in the Power Zone, but my wife teaches in the Power Zone while my son attends a Power Zone school. This is our home. When not at school, we enjoy spending time outdoors and appreciating all the opportunities offered in the Colorado Springs area.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns, and I’d be happy to work alongside you. We all play a valuable part in the Odyssey Elementary team!
