Welcome to Philadelphia Primary. My name is Mrs. Barbara Zehr and I have been the Principal at Philly Primary and the Director of English as a New Language (ENL) since January 2013. I am so happy to be a part of the Philadelphia Community and School Family. It is the best of both worlds; serving a large district with many perse cultures and populations in a small school setting. Philly Primary is truly my home away from home.

My husband Jason and I reside outside of Beaver Falls, NY. We have three children who are all grown and beginning their own journeys and adventures. It is an exciting time!

In the past 24 years, I have had the privilege of teaching elementary (3rd grade), and both Middle School and High School Math . I have also worked with many other districts as a Curriculum Coordinator for Jefferson Lewis BOCES. These experiences have helped me grow in my profession and appreciate the amazing potential and opportunities a great education can provide for the students in which I serve.

As principal, my priority is to provide all of my students and teachers a safe place to learn and play. This is a collaborative effort which is only made possible with assistance from the families and community members of Philadelphia. Please feel free to check out our website and see all the great things that are going on at our PK-3 building. Our Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) meets monthly, and we welcome anyone to attend.

Most importantly, should you have any questions or needs, please feel free to contact our primary office at 315-642-3432. Mrs. Jennifer VanTassel, our office secretary, will be happy to assist you and point you in the right direction.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's life.

With Regards,

Mrs. Barbara Zehr
Principal, Philadelphia Primary School
ENL Director, IRCSD
