For Immediate Release: September 7, 2018

 

The Mojave Unified Board of Trustees approved the appointment of

Nauman Zaidi as the new principal of Mojave Elementary school at its

August 9, 2018 regular board meeting.

 

Mr. Zaidi spent the majority of his administrative career as an assistant

principal at Joshua Hills Elementary School from 2013 to 2017, and as an

assistant principal at Cactus Middle School from 2011 to 2013 - both in the

Palmdale School District.  He also served as the assistant principal and

athletic director in the Tahoe - Truckee Unified and Santa Monica Unified

School districts.

 

Mr. Zaidi began his teaching career in LAUSD, teaching pre-algebra and

algebra, and taught math and science in the Coachella Valley Unified School

District prior to promoting to an administrator position.

 

In his past assistant principal positions, Mr. Zaidi has mentored teachers,

implemented anti-bullying programs, served as testing coordinator, provided

curriculum development and improvement, increased parent involvement,

provided technology support and worked on closing the achievement gap, to

name some of his competencies and experience.

 

Mr. Zaidi earned his Bachelor of Science from University of California,

Riverside and his Master of Arts in education with an administrative credential

from Cal State San Bernardino. He holds a teaching credential in mathematics

from UCLA.

 

“It is truly a blessing and an honor to be joining the team of educators in Mojave

Unified,” Zaidi said. “I look forward to working collaboratively with all members

of the Mojave community to meet the diverse needs of our students. Go Colts!”

 

Mr. Zaidi replaces Mr. Dan Sexton, who is now the Director of Curriculum Integration

and Educational Partnerships for Mojave Unified.
