Meet the Associate Principal - Vanessa Scafede

  • Vanessa Scafede Greetings Picture Rocks Community! I am proud to be the associate principal at Picture Rocks Elementary.

    As a graduate of MUSD, I have a lot of pride in the schools in this district, especially PRE. I started my career in education as a teacher in the Picture Rocks community over 10 years ago. I have had the opportunity to be a teacher, library-media specialist, and now associate principal here. I am dedicated to the students and families of this community. The relationships that we've built with families, students, and staff make our school a very special place. Picture Rocks Elementary prides itself on the family like culture we've created on our campus. I truly believe that every student should feel welcomed, supported, and empowered when they become a Picture Rocks Hawk.

    As the associate principal, one of my primary jobs is to support our students and staff with our positive behavior support (PBIS) model. We teach our students to Soar with Four - Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Kind. Student know these expectations throughout the campus and our staff continuously reinforces these character building skills to create an effective learning environment. 

    I look forward to working together with the principal, faculty, and families to provide our students with the best elementary education we can give them. Proud to be PRE!
