Tradition - Performance - Opportunity

Welcome to Kinder Ranch Elementary

What an honor and blessing it is to be able to serve as the principal at Kinder Ranch Elementary School. The educational excellence, strong community support and rich traditions that exist on this campus are a direct result of committed staff, students and parents. Being a Cowboy is the BEST!

Our job as educators is to keep your kids, OUR Cowboys, safe, support them as they develop their social-emotional selves and educate them to the best of their abilities. We have the perfect staff in place to do this job, and they do it with pride and joy.

Thank you for sharing your children with us, trusting us to impact them and prepare them for their future, whatever that may hold for them. My job as principal is to serve our community, so please feel free to contact me at any time, as we are a team in this educational process, and our goal is success for these sweet Cowboy kiddos.

Together we are “THE BRAND OF GREATNESS” at Kinder Ranch.

While their anthem song may be “On the Road Again,” their heart song is probably “Imagine” by John Lennon or “What aWonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. As they travel the backroads, highways and creek beds that make up the Comal Independent School District, they offer a unique perspective on education, students and families.
