Ms. Uzma Askari

Welcome Red Wings!


My name is Uzma Askari and I am honored to join the Cardinal Ridge School Team as a Dean. I am a native of Toronto, Canada where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Bachelor of Education from York University. I earned my Master’s Degree of Education in Curriculum and Instruction specializing in Literacy from George Mason University.  To support my need for continuous learning, I am currently working on my Administrative Leadership Endorsement at Shenandoah University.  


This is my 15th year in Education and my 11th year as an Educator with LCPS. Prior to becoming a Dean at Cardinal Ridge, I was a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach at Potowmack Elementary. In addition to my time in Loudoun County, I have worked as a Third-Grade teacher in both Alexandria, VA and Richmond Hill, CAN. 


My favorite pastimes are spending time with my family, traveling, cooking and cheering for DC/Toronto sports teams! I am extremely passionate about literacy and enjoy sharing my love of reading with students.  I have two daughters that keep me busy when I am not at school, ages 7 and 11.


I am truly excited to serve the community and look forward to the many opportunities to support our students and staff so that they may experience a wonderful 2018-2019 school year!
