Meet the Principal - Vanessa Scafede

  • Vanessa Scafede

    Greetings Picture Rocks Community! I am the proud principal at Picture Rocks Elementary.  

    I am thrilled to be a PRE Hawk  and look forward to building relationships with our families, students, and staff that make this school such a special place. I truly believe that by working together, we can create a school culture that fosters growth, learning, and success and we can make this school the best it can be! 

    As a graduate of MUSD, and a parent of a MUSD student, I have a lot of pride in the schools in our district. I started my career in education in 2007 as a teacher at Picture Rocks Intermediate. I was a teacher, library-media specialist, and associate principal at Picture Rocks. In 2021, I had the opportunity to work in a different school community and became the associate principal at Ironwood Elementary. I am thankful for all the opportunities I had prior to becoming a principal. 

    I am so happy to be back at Picture Rocks as the Principal. I’m eager to bring my experience, knowledge, and passion to a school and community that holds a special place in my heart. I am excited about working together with Mr. Hudecek, the faculty, and families to provide our students with the best elementary education we can give them.

    I am here to help - please contact me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions. I look forward to working with you!
