Springs Ranch Elementary School Principal
Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jim Kyner
My name is Jim Kyner and I am honored to serve as your principal at Springs Ranch Elementary. I have been the principal of SRES for 7 years. Whether you are exploring elementary schools or are already a member of the bobcat family, we welcome you and encourage you to come check us out in person. Here is a little more about my background.
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 the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. After graduating, I moved to Virginia, where I would spend the next 23 years teaching, coaching, and leading 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 each new year of learners!
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.
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.
