Mrs. Asiya Umer
I am a co-teacher in the Social Studies department. I am so excited to be working with the staff, students and families at BHS this year. This will be my fourteenth year of teaching and it continues to be a very enriching experience. I look forward to getting to know your child over the next year, but first let me introduce myself. I live in Naperville with my husband of 33 years and have three grown children. I also grew up in London, so you will hear my distinct British accent when we get a chance to talk!
This is my ninth year in Valley View and I have taught at BHS, BSE and PNR. I have served different roles in the district including Coordinator for Specialized Instruction and Resources and SRT. I got my bachelor’s degree and my first master’s degree from NIU. Go Huskies! I also have a masters in Educational Leadership and 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.
