Associate of Arts, Mesa Community College; Bachelor of Psychology, Arizona State University; Master’s degree in Education and Certification in School Counseling, Ottaway University 

Ms. Conaway started teaching in 2005 and has been with Arizona Connections Academy since 2011. According to Ms. Conaway, the best part of her job as a school counselor is building relationships with students. 

"Working with young people is my passion. Advocating for students and working with their parents as a team is very rewarding. Following a student’s journey through high school, and then getting to see them earn a diploma, makes me happy year after year. 

This school has students from every walk of life. That’s a bonus in my job, because the students teach me what’s happening in so many aspects of life that I may not have learned about otherwise."

“The best part of my job is building relationships with students. That’s absolutely the best part.”
