Alyson Rocco


Principal of Madera Technical Exploration Center, Alyson Rocco, is most excited to create an environment where students learn by doing and ignite passions that lead students to pursue future aspirations in high school, college and career. As a former Madera High School graduate, she is excited to return to Madera Unified. She has spent the last fifteen years in Clovis Unified, ten as a classroom teacher and five in administration at all levels: elementary, intermediate and high school. At the 7-12 level Alyson oversaw English, Academic Block, Drama, Choir, Forensics, and the CTE Education Pathway. She received her Bachelors of Arts and Teaching Credential at San Diego State University, her Master’s in Education from Fresno State University, and her Administrative Credential through Fresno County Office of Education. Alyson and her husband, Bobby, have been married for over ten years. They have two young daughters. As a family they enjoy sports, traveling, reading, home improvement projects and game nights.
