Meet the Principal

Mrs. Kyra Fancher joined the Midwest Central family as Middle School Principal at the start of the 2016-2017 school year.

Mrs. Fancher grew up in nearby Mason City and attended Illinois State University, earning her B.S. in Elementary Education. Her teaching career began with 4 rewarding years at Zion Lutheran School in Lincoln as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher and then as a 5th grade teacher. Mrs. Fancher followed up that experience with 13 wonderful years teaching 6th and 7th grade math in her home district of Illini Central. Upon completion of her Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership in 2013, Mrs. Fancher took on the role of Junior High Principal at Oak Grove West in Bartonville. When the Middle School Principal position at Midwest Central came open in 2016, Mrs. Fancher jumped at the chance to be part of the district.

Mrs. Fancher and her husband, Chad, currently live in San Jose with their 2 dogs and 2 cats, who have taken the place of their 4 adult children that have careers or are working on college degrees. In her free time, she enjoys working alongside her husband on home improvement projects or relaxing on the porch swing with a good book.
