Meet Your School Case Manager

Desiree Smith

Hi! My name is Desiree Smith and I am the CIS Program Manager at Lake worth high school. I am a licensed social worker and received my degree from Tarleton State University . My favorite thing about working with students is helping them figure out what their goals are and watching them achieve the goals.  I am most looking forward to making memories with my students this school year.  I have one cat named River Song and my favorite snack is Hot fries chips, Reese’s pieces, banana taffy. I can’t wait to meet you and your family!
