Mr. Ben Threadgill

I am honored to serve you as the new principal of J. Michael Conley Elementary. I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to work with an extremely dedicated staff and supportive community. I look forward to working with you and your children throughout the coming school year. I believe that education is meant for all students regardless of their educational needs. I look forward to building a connection between you and our team at Conley to work together as a unified front to meet each and every child's needs. It is our goal to help every child reach their maximum potential in life and we know there is no way to accomplish that goal without working directly with you. I look forward to meeting you as we begin the 2022-23 school year.
