    The coordinating conjunction in the sentence is "BUT". A coordinating conjunction is a word that joins two items of the same rank. Those items can be words, phrases or sentences. In this case,"but" is used to introduce the second statement ("Our teacher has waited so patiently for out report") which is different from the first one ("We have not submitted it yet"). The conjunction "but" presents a contrast between those two ideas.
