Meet the Principal

A Message From Our Principal

Dear Pickett Families, 

Welcome to Frances Brandon-Pickett Elementary, home of the Mustangs! I am extremely proud to be the principal of such a terrific school. It is a pleasure to work with a staff that is so dedicated to helping all students achieve success. Our students are eager to gain and excited to share new knowledge. Our parents and community members are committed to our students, and support and assist us in every way possible. Pickett is a caring community that is dedicated to the academic and behavioral growth of our children. It is because of the commitment of all stakeholders that we can maintain our tradition of academic excellence at Pickett, an “A” school, the highest rating bestowed by the Arizona Department of Education. 

It is my belief that all students are capable of learning and achieving high standards when provided with instruction that will meet their needs. School should be an exciting and enjoyable place where students look forward to learning. We strive to make all decisions based on our students' best interests. My desire is to be a leader who promotes quality education and collaboration with students, staff, and parents; together as a team, we will help our children reach their potential. 

I have an amazing opportunity to work with the priceless staff, students, and parents at Pickett. This is a dream come true. Thank you for sharing your children with us every day. 

If you ever have a question, concern, or idea, please feel free to contact me at
