Social Work & Counseling

Nissa Roark, LMSW

Nissa Roark (Ms. Nissa) is excited to join DVISD and Smith Elementary this year. School social work has been her passion for as long as she can remember, and she has over five years of experience working at the elementary school level. Nissa is a graduate of St. Edward’s University and Texas State, where she received her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in Social Work.

Nissa believes in the power of play and importance of connection. Her office is a space where students can express themselves, learn, breathe, and grow. She is dedicated to supporting a positive campus culture where everyone feels like they belong. Nissa is looking forward to partnering with families this year and supporting students and their wellbeing!

In her free time, Nissa enjoys crafting, playing with her dog, Olive, and visiting local coffee shops. She also enjoys spending time in nature and exploring the Texas Hill Country.
