Mrs. Asiya Umer

I am the new SRT at Beverly Skoff Elementary. I am so excited to be working with the staff, students and families at BSE this year. This will be my twelfth year teaching and it continues to be a very enriching experience. I look forward to getting to know the BSE community over the next year but first let me introduce myself. I live in Naperville with my husband of 31 years and have three grown children. This past summer we celebrated the marriage of our eldest child (photo inserted), and welcomed our daughter-in-law Lizzie into the family. I also grew up in London so you will hear my distinct British accent when we get a chance to talk!

This is my eight year in Valley View and I have taught at BHS and PNR. Last year I was at the Administrative Center in my role as Coordinator for Specialized Instruction and Resources. I got my bachelor’s degree and my first master’s degree from NIU. Go Huskies! I recently graduated from the American College of Education with my masters in Educational Leadership. I also have an ELL endorsement. I have worked with students of diverse abilities at all grade levels and enjoy getting to know them and their families each year. I learn as much from my students and families as they learn from me.

My hobbies include, fitness, baking, movies, reading and crocheting. I like to relax by cleaning, in particular I love organizing spaces! (I guess we all have our quirks!). I also love to learn new phrases in other languages. Feel free to teach me some if you can speak a language other than English! My favorite things include: Travel, French Fries and cat naps (not during school!!!).

Please reach out to me before the school year starts should you have any questions or concerns or you would just like to chat. You can also email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
