Katrina Fontinha is Conrad's 2024 Teacher of the Year

Katrina joined the Conrad faculty in 2011 to help establish our Veterinarian and Animal Science pathway. Her love for science, animals and what she does has made an immense impact on our students and school community. She has been instrumental in the expansion of not just our pathway, but also in the development of our FFA programming. She doesn’t just educate and guide our Vet. Science students; she fosters a love of animals and care, by  instilling a sense of community into them as well.  As a member of our school community, Katrina has been both a soccer and track coach, our FFA advisor and Barn manager, as well as, hosting a number of initiatives and fundraisers that we ALL look forward to every year, like- farm to fork, Thanksgiving baskets, The Fall Fest, and many other educational outreach programming- like “Back to school day”.
