Tell us about yourself!

My name is Don Conaway and this is my 17th year as an educator and my 13th year in the Norristown Area School District. I have recently transitioned to my new role within ESTLA as the Director of our STEM Lab. I chose to be an educator because I love opportunity to inspire young learners and be positive members of their community. Along with directing our STEM Lab, I also help to facilitate the Norristown Sprouts Community Garden with the Montgomery County Dept of Health & Human Services here on our schools campus. I also facilitate my schools social media accounts.
