Meet Ms. Wallace

Parents love their children. Educators want to help their students. And kids just want to succeed. I’ve experienced these challenges first-hand. We will face them together, hand in hand. The time has come to take action.

My Story

For more than 30 years, I have been a Dallas ISD parent and community organizer in South Dallas. A graduate of James Madison High School, I hold a BS in criminal justice from Texas Southern University.

It Takes A Village

My goal is to build unity in the community. Bridging the gaps of inequitable education, it's time out for play politics with the lives of our black and brown children. I've never been interested in politicking with something so vital, the lives of children.
