She will represent Delaware along with all other state winners in the running for the national award presented by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).

Mrs. Conaty, along with the Howard administrative team, has been invited to present at the National School Boards Association annual conference on initiatives and strategies they developed which focused on improving student achievement at Howard. They were also invited to present on Howard’s 1:1 iPad initiative at the annual International Society for Technology Education Conference. Prior to being named assistant principal, she served as a vocational specialist and the Early Education career teacher at St. Georges.
