Ms. Uzma Askari
My name is Uzma Askari, and I am ready and excited to begin my fourth year at Seldens Landing as your Assistant Principal. 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. In the spirit of life-learning, I completed my graduate studies in Administrative Leadership from Shenandoah University.
This is my 19th year in education and my 15th year as an educator with LCPS. Prior to Seldens Landing, I was an administrative dean at Cardinal Ridge Elementary and a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach at Potowmack Elementary. In addition to my time in Loudoun County, I have worked as an elementary teacher in both Alexandria, VA and Richmond Hill, CAN.
My favorite pastimes are spending time with my family, traveling, cooking,reading 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, ages 11 and 15, both in Loudoun County Public Schools.
As the 2022-2023 school year begins, I am committed to serving the Seldens Landing community and look forward to the many opportunities to support our students and staff so that they may experience a wonderful school year!!
