Welcome! I'm Franchesca Warren. I taught for 13 years and currently work as a learning consultant and instruct-
ional coach based in Atlanta, Ga. I created this site in 2012 because I love not only collaborating with other teachers, but I wanted to build a network that shows that teachers are the experts in education.
