The Mojave Unified Board of Trustees approved the appointment of

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

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

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

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
