About Us

Kimberly Glaspie – Early Elementary (Prek-2)

Howdy ya’ll!!

My name is Kimberly “Ms. Kim” Glaspie and I am from Houston, TX.  After living in the UAE for seven years, I can truly say that this is home for now. My passion for working with children brought me to the UAE in 2011 as a teacher with the Abu Dhabi Education Council. This is my first year at UAS and I am so excited to work with each of you!!

For over 12 years I have worked in education as an instructor, a team leader and a teacher of Kindergarten – Grade 2. I have also worked as a Community Outreach Counselor and an Adult Drug and Alcohol Counselor.

I am a member of the American School Counselors Association (ASCA), International School Counselors Association (ISCA) and I was a charter member of the Dubai Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (Omega Theta Omega Chapter). Follow me on Twitter @kglaspie and on Instagram @mizzkimg

Sarina Vasquez – Upper Elementary


Hello UAS!  I’m so happy to jump into a new and exciting school year with you.  My name is Sarina Vasquez and I am honored to be your grades 3, 4 and 5 School Counselor. This is my 16th year in education, my second year as an Elementary School Counselor and my first year at UAS. I am a proud graduate of Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi where I obtained my undergrad in Interdisciplinary Studies.  I also hold a masters in School Counseling from Lamar University.

Texas is where I call home, however, I lived in Abu Dhabi and taught grade 3 from 2012-2014. Six years have passed since then, and that love for the Emirati culture has called me back to the UAE, this time as a counselor.  My life in Dubai, outside of UAS, is dedicated to my husband Osama and my cat Charles.

I am a proud member of the American School Counseling Association. My interests include, but are not limited to playing racquetball, tennis, attending theater productions and catching a good movie at the cinema. I look forward to each day at UAS and our exciting adventures together in the coming year! Follow me on Twitter @Sarina_UASDubai and on Instagram @sarina_vasquez_uas
