Born and raised South Dallas Native, Proud Madison Trojan and Prairie View A&M University Panther, I Shumika Bates am excited to join the Viking family. I served as an English Teacher at James Madison High School in the early 2000's. I served as the Education Director at The Jefferies Street Learning Center until the center closed in 2010. Then I became an entrepreneur as a Tax Professional. I’ve been a Tax Preparer since December 2010 located in the heart of South Dallas on the historic Martin L. King Blvd. I have always been an advocate of South Dallas, it's home and a place where I love to serve our youth and community. I look forward to serving as "The Community Liaison" for The Dr. Billy E. Dade Middle School, where we know “All Eyes are on Us”!
