Meet the Principal


Meet the Principal:  Kerri Helgeson

It is with great pleasure to introduce myself to you as the principal at Pioneer Elementary. I am honored and proud to be a part of this fantastic school. I have experienced wonderful things with the staff, students and families that are a part of the Pioneer community. 

Here is a little about me: I worked in the Mount Vernon School District for the last 19 years, first as a 6th grade teacher and then more recently, as the K-12 Math Teacher on Special Assignment. My husband and I have been married for 24 years and have three beautiful children: Zack, 21; Cole, 17; and Katie,14. They keep us busy with their multiple activities, interests, and social life. We have lived in the Big Lake area for 9 years. As a family, we enjoy camping in our motorhome and watching sports on television.  I am looking forward to continuing  as principal at Pioneer. When schools and families work together, everyone benefits.
