Meet Your School Leader

Desiree Smith
School Leader

I joined the KIPP family in 2011. Over the past 11 years, I have been dedicated to supporting students, families, and educators at KIPP ZENITH Academy. I have served as a founding 2nd-grade teacher, Dean of Student Culture, Campus Testing Coordinator, Dean of Early Childhood, Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal, and Principal In Residence.

I attended Prairie View A&M University, obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master’s in Education Administration. I am committed to connecting academic advancement, student excellence, and educational transformation within my leadership. I believe that every child deserves a quality education.

I enjoy spending time with my two children, family, and friends in my spare time.
