Former Cobb County educator charged for drinking alcoholic beverage in classroom with students


A Cobb County Schools employee, Jean Warnken, was fired after allegedly drinking alcohol in the classroom with students at William Milton Davis Elementary School.

An arrest warrant says that on March 3rd, Warnken was in possession of alcohol on public school grounds. It went on to say that Warnken had a plastic cup with a lid and straw containing an alcoholic beverage inside a classroom with students.

In May 2020, Warnken was celebrated as Davis Elementary Classified Employee of the Year. In presenting the award, officials said Warnken was an amazing part of the Davis team and shows such love and compassion for her students every day.

A Cobb Schools spokesperson confirms she was a paraprofessional saying, “Although this person no longer works for the District, Cobb Schools police and local administration are working with a police investigation into a paraprofessional. We expect all employees to support students as professionals and uphold District policy.”
