Mrs. Cathy VanNess

It is with great enthusiasm that I start this new school year as the Executive Principal at Rosenberg Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to be a part of a school with such a rich tradition of focusing on all student needs with the "whole child approach" to learning. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty-six years and have worked with a variety of students and families for pre-kindergarten though middle school age. I have spent my last 11 years as principal of Austin Middle School, and I look forward to working with elementary students again.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to provide meaningful learning and leadership experiences for our students. We will focus on providing rigorous instruction with high expectations and integrating social emotional learning strategies so that students build confidence in themselves as learners and leaders.

All of us at Rosenberg Elementary School are ready to begin an amazing school year. I look forward to meeting the students and parents in August. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at

Our Principals in Residence, Margie Kusnerik and Michelle Pedalino, and I are eager to work with you as a partners in education to ensure your child's success.
