Mr. Jim Kyner

Greets and welcome to Springs Ranch Elementary!  We are an elementary school serving Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.  We hold high expectations for our staff, students, and families and desire to provide the support to meet those expectations.  I am honored to serve as your principal and want you to know a little more about me.

I grew up in Northeast Ohio and attended Ohio Wesleyan University where I earned my bachelor's in Elementary Education.  I also played football while at OWU, was a leader in a Big Sibling program, and a leader in Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  After graduating, I moved to Virginia where I would spend the next 23 years teaching, coaching, and leading in public education.  I have taught 4th, 6th, and 8th grades.  I coached football and wrestling.  I earned a Master's in Administration and Supervision from the University of Virginia.  As a leader in schools, I have been an assistant principal, principal, and district level coordinator.  I moved to Colorado Springs in July of 2016 to become the principal of Springs Ranch Elementary and am excited about this opportunity in a new state!

I am married and have 6 children.  We enjoy being together as a family.  Some of our favorite activities are hiking, camping, and kayaking.  We like playing board games or watching a family movie.  My favorite movie is "It's a Wonderful Life".  I enjoy sports and competition.  (Truthfully, I like to win, but consider myself a good sport).

I am committed to serving the students, their families and the staff at Springs Ranch Elementary.  I want all stakeholders to work together to provide the best environment possible for our students to learn and grow.  I appreciate you trusting us with your children and want you to know that my door is open if you ever have any questions, concerns or just want to say hello.
