Welcome to the new school year!!!

Welcome back everyone! I’m Samarah Qadir and this is my sixth year teaching at UAS and fifth year being the 6th Grade Team Leader. I am thrilled to be your child’s Math teacher this year. Prior to UAS, I was teaching at AISA, our sister school in Abu Dhabi, for 2 and a half years and before that I taught at the International School of Islamabad in Pakistan. I have taught various subjects to 6th graders in Middle School over my past 9 years of teaching.

Having being born in Saudi Arabia, educated in the US and holding a Pakistani passport; I am an amalgamation of various cultures and am delighted to have a class that represents so many different nationalities and backgrounds. Such a diverse environment empowers us to learn from one another and embrace and respect differences.

Rachel, Katie, Jennifer and I have all come in to teach 6th grade with our distinctive strengths and we are committed to working collectively in order to ensure your child gets the best education possible. We believe that together with us as a team, and with your support as parents; your child will have a very rewarding school year. During the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions, comments or concerns on sqadir1@uasdubai.ae.

Looking forward to meeting many of you on the Middle School Back to School Night tentatively scheduled for September 20th. I am eager to get to know all of you and have an amazing school year together!
