Home / Principal


Dear Freemansburg Community,

It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as your new Principal. I am deeply honored to work in the Bethlehem Area School District with its long history and culture of academic excellence. I will work extremely hard to maintain the legacy of success here at Freemansburg.

I received my Bachelors from Hampton University in Elementary Education and my Masters in Educational Leadership from George Mason University. I began my Educational career in Prince William County Public Schools as an Elementary teacher before getting promoted to an Elementary Assistant Principal. My family moved to New Jersey where I served as a Senior Director of Talent Acquisition recruiting and selecting Educational professionals for K-12.

On a personal note, my husband and I moved to the Lehigh Valley in 2020 and are the proud parents of a 1-year-old boy. He is our pride and joy and makes us smile each and every day. Rest assured your children are in great hands as I will always keep their best interests in mind – just as I do with my own child.

I am passionate and absolutely love what I do! Relationships between families and the school are very important to me and are vital to the success of our students, so I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. I look forward to working and building relationships with our amazing students, families, and staff members of Freemansburg Elementary.

In partnership,

Mrs. Ashlee Woodson
