For many, a career and calling are two vastly different pursuits.  A career can be carefully crafted and shaped to impact the world.  A calling is the lifelong mission that attaches itself to one’s very soul, guiding every step for a lifetime. Tanika’s calling is in education.  From the pulpit to the classroom, Tanika Shedrick strives to help everyone reach their fullest potential.

As one of the newly appointed Associate Superintendents of School Leadership for Buffalo Public Schools, Tanika Shedrick, supervises thirteen schools. She works closely with fellow cabinet members to oversee the effective implementation of the Superintendent’s Education Bargain and carefully create world-class educational opportunities for all students in the Buffalo City School District.

Tanika Shedrick is an Elder of True Bethel Baptist Church, First Vice President of the Buffalo Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, and a member of the Buffalo (NY) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. Her greatest achievement is her wonderful marriage to her husband of 15 years and her two beautiful sons.
