    It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the Freedom Area Elementary School!  My name is Emily Mather, and I am your new Elementary Principal.  I am honored and excited to work with the students, faculty, staff, parents, and community in this new role.

    I believe that learning is a balance of activities and skills that focus on communication, collaboration, responsibility, perseverance, and innovation.  Navigating learning experiences through play, differentiated lessons, and goal setting are important for the individual growth of every student at Freedom. 

    Our Parent-Teacher Association works diligently to support excellence in education at Freedom through many opportunities including assemblies and numerous exceptional events that benefit our students.  We appreciate the efforts of all who contribute to enriching our students’ educational experience.    

    I have been in the field of education for 13 years, with Master's Degrees in both Reading and Elementary Education.  I have taught both Elementary and Middle school, ranging from kindergarten to eighth grade.  I’ve been part of our Freedom team, supporting colleagues, students, and families for the past five years, fulfilling roles as an Instructional Coach, Intervention Coordinator, and Dean of Students.  I have also worked closely with community preschools to offer support with Kindergarten transition.  

    I look forward to working with you as we continue to strive for excellence through the mission, vision and core values of the Freedom Area School District.
