I am very proud to be serving as the Principal for Mahoning Elementary School.  We have an
extremely dedicated staff that works together to foster a positive and nurturing learning
environment conducive to high student achievement.
Originally from Jim Thorpe and currently living in Palmerton, I attended school in the Jim
Thorpe Area School District.  Once completing High School, I acquired my Bachelor’s Degree in
Elementary Education at Kutztown University.  After graduation I was hired by the Whitehall-
Coplay School district for 8 years as a fourth grade teacher.  During that time, my Master’s
Degree was completed at Wilkes University in the Educational Leadership/Principalship
My family consists of three sons; Garrett, Kyle, Justin, and my wife Terri.  We currently reside
in Palmerton.  I like to fish, read, spend time with our children, and play sports.  The Lehighton
Area School District has welcomed me and my family as one of its own.  Your hospitality and
respect is much appreciated.  
As the proud principal of Mahoning Elementary School, I’d like to extend my personal thanks to
you for taking the time to learn a bit about our school.  Should you have any questions or seek
more information, know that you can contact me by phone (570-386-4678), email
(asebelin@lehighton.org), or by visiting the school.  
Our webpage offers additional information about our wonderful school and district.  We are
proud of this quality school.  Thanks for visiting!
