     I would like to welcome each and every one of you to the 2020-2021 school year!  It is an honor to introduce myself as the new Principal of Kellar Primary School.  With over thirty years serving Peoria Public Schools, I have had the pleasure of being both a teacher and parent to a Kellar Colt, along with assistant principal at various schools in the district.  Kellar Primary School has a long history of academic excellence, knowledgeable and dedicated staff, supportive families, and students who are eager to learn.  I am thrilled to be back with my Kellar family!

    I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and my Master of Science Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Illinois State University.  Through an Advanced Study in Educational Foundations of Administration from Illinois State University, I also received my principal certification.  I passionately believe each student can achieve academic success by providing outstanding education and meeting individual needs.

    One of the unprecedented challenges we face coming into this school year is what education will look like with COVID-19.  Please know that student and staff safety is our top priority while staying committed to our high standards of teaching and learning.  I know this will be another remarkable year.  Together, we will continue to promote excellence for every student at Kellar.  We are safe, we are responsible, and we are respectful because WE ARE KELLAR!  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at (309)693-4439 or Heidi.Baron@psd150.org
