     Michelle Carroll Smith

    I have been a member of the Lytle ISD family most of my life. I am a third generation Pirate as my grandmother, Teresa Naegelin Carroll graduated from Lytle High School in 1940 and my father, Alfred Lee Carroll, graduated in 1961 from Lytle High School. I graduated in 1981. My children graduated from Lytle High School in 2013 and 2016 and were the fourth generation of my family to attend Lytle schools.  Lytle ISD has been my place of employment since 1987. I was an elementary teacher for 7 years and became assistant principal of the Elementary in 1994. In September 2000, I moved to Central Office as Assistant Superintendent and was named Superintendent in December 2002.  

    As Superintendent of Lytle ISD, I work to ensure a quality education for all students. Together, with community and staff, we strive daily to help our children prepare for their lives as members of our community and our nation. Our goal of providing the skills necessary to live a good life requires the commitment of many people. My admiration and thanks goes to all those who make Lytle ISD a Leader In Student Development.

    Greetings fellow Pirates! I am thrilled to begin my third year as Assistant Superintendent in Lytle ISD! During my 23 years in public education, I’ve proudly served as a bilingual elementary teacher and assistant principal, secondary campus principal and Director of Curriculum & Instruction, mostly in large urban and suburban districts. Being a Lytle Pirate is a dream come true, because I’m able to interact with our incredible teachers, staff and students on a daily basis as I visit classrooms and support our campus and district leaders. I also get to cheer on our Pirates, whether it’s on an athletic field, at an arts event or a UIL academic competition.  

    This year I’m excited to help launch our Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) program along with new resources for addressing the academic and behavioral needs of our 1,800 students through an updated Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) process. Outside of work, you’re likely to find me hiking through different countries, devouring ultra-spicy foods and spending time with my incredible family. It’s a great day to be a Pirate!
