Cobb County School Board, District 6
Help elect Charisse
Charisse Davis is an experienced educator and mother of two. She started her teaching career working with kindergarteners and helping them to develop a love for learning. After obtaining a Masters of Library and Information Science, she became a library media specialist and taught students in grades K through 6.
During her 15-year career in public education, Charisse became the recipient of school librarianship and leadership awards. She has recently obtained her specialist in education degree and serves the public as a youth services librarian in the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System. She is an avid school volunteer, serving on the local school council and leadership boards of the PTA and parent foundation.
As a longtime Cobb County resident, Charisse believes that the Cobb County School Board will benefit greatly from her experience as both an experienced educator and a parent leader where she will be a voice for teachers and students.
Charisse wants to expand Pre-K, work to ensure the needs of every student are being met, and create engines of transparency to ensure the true stakeholders in Cobb County schools (parents, teachers, and students) understand the decisions that impact them. Across our communities, we all want the best for our kids; Charisse’s experience as an educator and as an active parent volunteer has given her a unique perspective that can benefit the children and families of Cobb County. The strength of the county relies on the strength of its schools.
As a board member, Charisse will prioritize reinstating early learning options for the district’s families. A solid early learning foundation shows a positive impact on students for many years to come. Cobb County is the 23rd largest school district in the nation. However, the current school board does not reflect the diversity of the communities it represents and there is great inequity within our district. As someone who has taught students from diverse backgrounds, Charisse understands that while the needs of students may differ, their right to a chance at reaching their full potential is universal.
