  • Welcome to the 2023 - 2024school year. My name is Abu Zaeem and I will be serving Shadybrook Elementary School students and families as their principal. I am excited to be returning to Shadybrook Elementary for my second year. I am looking forward to working with our young men and women and helping them become successful. We have a golden opportunity to influence our children in a manner so that they are prepared to become productive citizens of this great country. 


    I bring to Shadybrook 18 years of experience in education. Previously, my experience has been in the classroom as a Mathematics teacher in middle and high school and as an administrator at the middle school level. I received my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Business Administration from High Point University. I later returned to my alma mater to receive my Master's degree in Educational Leadership.


    I have three beautiful children. Amir, 19, Ayesha, 13 and AbuZarr, 8, who keep me busy while at home. 


    I look forward to serving Shadybrook community and forming positive relationships with our staff, children, parents and community members. Feel free to stop by and visit our school or email me at or call 336-819-2950 if you have any questions or suggestions.  


    Let’s have a great 2023 - 2024 School Year!
