No showboating… just a teacher who loves teaching!I always enjoy his vlog’s but this particular one stood out for me. I loved what he had to say. During this particular vlog he said “Math is not a worksheet.” Then he said, “I think that is a hashtag.” {I am paraphrasing.}

Anyhow, I looked it up and traced it back to none other than Vickie Plant. Vickie blogs over on Primary Press. She is precious, she is smart, AND she has the cutest little girl that I may stalk a bit on Instagram.

Nicole Ramirez, M.Ed. Principal

Welcome to the weekly campus memo for Flatonia Elementary. This bulletin is an outlet that allows me to not only share what is happening on campus, but to also share articles, resources, ideas, and information. I believe this helps me to continually develop and learn professionally. I hope that the Inspirations Memo can provide you with meaningful nuggets of learning. I invite you to join me in learning everyday at Flatonia Elementary!
