Springs Ranch Elementary School Principal
Degrees and Certifications:
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.
