District 4: Franchesca Warren

  • Incoming (newly sworn in) District Four Fulton County School Board Member, Franchesca Warren has spent the last 18+ years advocating for equity in literacy resources for all students - as a teacher, instructional coach, and literacy coordinator across the Southeast.

    Always in search of a way to amplify teacher voices, she has presented at several national conferences including NCTE, GCTE, and other professional education organizations. In 2012, Ms. Warren was selected as the South Atlanta High School, School of Law and Social Justice Teacher of the Year for the 2012-2013 school year and a Difference Maker for the Atlanta Public School district. Due to her accolades both inside and outside the classroom, she has been featured on several local news stations including Education Week and the Jennifer Keitt Show. In 2015, she was selected out of hundreds of applications to be part of Harvard’s Turnaround School Leader Training where she collaborated with school leaders from around the world on how to tackle the inequities found in many of her schools from a district perspective.

    Inspired by her experience in schools, Ms. Warren founded the parent advocacy think tank, South Fulton Parents for Education, where she has galvanized a group of parents to demand equity for schools south of the I-20 Corridor. Through the strategic work of these parents, they have been able to move forward with work of several initiatives around literacy, STEAM and mental health.

    Outside of her daily work with students and educators, Ms. Warren enjoys reading, writing, and resting when she has time to herself. She is also a wife and mom to four kids and one dog. Her oldest son is a Westlake High School graduate, who currently attends school at George Washington University in Washington, DC and interns on Capitol Hill. The youngest three children are all students in South Fulton ranging from Kindergarten to seventh grade.

    Board member since 2021. Current term expires December 31, 2024.
