Mrs. Misty Benson Smith

Hi, Otto Family!

I am extremely excited about the 2019-20 school year and the privilege to support our Otto Bobcats as the Academic Specialist! All of our kids are capable of success and our amazing team works hard to support all our students and their needs. Part of my role as Academic Specialist includes being the 504 and CMIT Coordinator. If you have any questions about the services we provide, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

The majority of my career has been as a high school AP English teacher and head soccer coach. I also served as department chair and athletic coordinator during my career. I hold a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M Commerce and my BA from St. Edward’s University. I am a proud Lake Highlands High School alumna; however, I was smart and married a Plano Wildcat.

I look forward to working together.

Misty Benson, M. Ed.
