Angela Conrad - Position 3 Candidate
- By Cheryl Donatto
"The past four years have been filled with new experiences and opportunities to learn about the challenges our students and schools face, and looking for ways to improve and enhance learning," Conrad said. "We are an outstanding district and have much to celebrate. There is still important work to be done and I would like to serve our community and the families in our school district for another four years.”
After serving her first term as a member of the Humble ISD Board of Trustees, Angela Conrad recently filed her intent to seek re-election to her Place 3 seat during the upcoming May 6 election.
A graduate of Arizona State University, she received her Master’s degree in Educational Technology. Conrad has over 14 years in public education, including six years classroom experience as a math teacher, and eight years’ experience in the Humble ISD Instructional Technology department. She won national recognition for Humble ISD through distance learning programs she designed, implemented, and shared with colleagues in other districts. She provided Humble ISD students and teachers with learning opportunities beyond the physical confines of the school buildings.
Conrad was elected to serve her first term on the HISD Board of Trustees in May 2013. She currently chairs the Board’s Technology and Data Governance Committee and the Board and Superintendent Evaluation Committee. She also serves on the Legislative Committee.
In addition to serving as parliamentarian, secretary and now vice-president of the board of trustees, Conrad’s service to Humble ISD extends far beyond monthly school board meetings. Since her election in 2013, Conrad said she has made school and community interactions a priority. She regularly visits school campuses at the invitation of principals and teachers and stays connected to the larger Humble ISD community through involvement in the Lake Houston Chamber and nonprofit and community events.
Additionally, she has dedicated time and training to better understand and implement best practices for highly effective school boards and has been an involved advocate supporting public education. Conrad has earned the designation of “Master Trustee” upon completion of Leadership TASB, a program sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards.
She is also a 2016 graduate of Leadership Lake Houston, a program designed to grow and develop community leaders in the Lake Houston area. Because of her knowledge and experience, she shares best practices with other school districts by presenting at state and national conferences. Conrad believes strongly in a nonpartisan school board and in working closely with her fellow school board members to achieve positive results.
The Humble ISD Board of Trustees was honored as one of five Outstanding School Boards in the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards for the past two years. Last year the board appointed a new superintendent, Dr. Elizabeth Fagen, who Conrad says “is a true leader for learning and will bring much needed alignment to all areas of our district operations.”
Conrad is an Instructional Designer for Insperity.
She and her husband, Troy Church, live in Kings River and together have six children (four of which are graduates of Humble ISD schools) and 11 grandchildren.
