Mr. Nick Roman
Greetings Rocky Run Families and Website Visitors!
My name is Nick Roman, and I am honored to serve as the principal here at Rocky Run Elementary. I began my career in education as a 3rd grade teacher at Stafford Elementary. I then had the opportunity to move to the newly opened Kate Waller Barrett Elementary where I continued to teach 3rd grade. In 2006 I transitioned to Ferry Farm Elementary as Assistant Principal until coming to Rocky Run as Principal in 2013.
We are Rocky Run Elementary...where Positive Attitudes Will Succeed and where EVERYBODY fits! Our mission here is rooted in the idea of taking care of the “whole child.” Engaging in the learning process is an everyday focus for both students and staff. We recognize the value that EACH person brings to our school community, and it is our belief that building each other’s potential is accomplished by celebrating success, embracing challenges, and taking risks. This is all a part of our DREAM as we build people!
Originally from an hour north of Pittsburgh (go “Black n Gold!”), I completed my undergraduate degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. My wife, Melissa, and I relocated to Fredericksburg to begin our teaching careers in Stafford County in 2001 when I later completed my graduate degree at Virginia Commonwealth University (go “Rams!”). We never knew how quickly this area would feel like home to us! We are the proud parents of two amazing daughters, both of whom attend Stafford Schools. Our commitment and dedication to SCPS continues as educators, parents, and residents of Stafford County.
Thank you for letting me share a little bit about myself and about our incredible school. We invite you to be an engaged stakeholder by attending our events, volunteering in classrooms and school activities, and/or supporting our mission by spreading good cheer about our school.

See you around campus!
