Shatika is passionate about education and has dedicated her life to ensuring success for all children. She is currently the parent coordinator at one of the local schools in the city of Huntsville, where she specializes in providing tools and resources for parents, creates workshops, support teachers, and serves as a liaison between the school and stakeholders. Shatika also has the unique privilege of being a part of the Desegregation Advisory Committee, where she works exclusively with other committee members to continue the work of gaining unitary status in Huntsville City Schools.
Shatika’s fervent drive for young people and their success is a motivator within all aspects of her life. As a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, she serves as the Co-Chair of their Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence (EMBODI). This program focuses on adolescent young men and encourages their potential to become leaders in their community.
Shatika says "We must ensure the success of all children. They all deserve the best and every opportunity no matter their different walks of life. We must ensure that our teachers feel supported, but most importantly heard. We must ensure that our community continues to support our schools, teachers, staff, and leaders to be the best school system possible. Education is a team effort!"
