My name is Ms. Forte, and I am the school counselor for David E. Smith Elementary. The counseling program at DES is a comprehensive developmental guidance program that addresses the needs of all students. I will always aim to encourage, uplift, and support all students. I will strive to equip students with the necessary tools that will help them achieve and be a success. I am so excited to be a part of the DES Family. I know it's going to be a great school year!
