Flatonia Elementary Memo

Inspired this week by Marcia Mica!

An Educator who is experienced and committed to the growth of all students. Marcia is an inspiration by her encouragement to other teachers, wealth of knowledge and instructional strategies, as well as her positive and helpful attitude.

Marcia has provided so many of our teachers with the support and guidance through her work in ESL and Intervention. She is always ready to assist, and helps make our school a better place!


Just a reminder to please be sure to turn off the Laminator after use. It was left on overnight one day this week, and of course this causes a fire safety hazard. Thanks for your awareness and attention to this.

Nicole Ramirez, M.Ed. Principal

I strive to be a Connected Educator that uses my online PLN to access resources, ideas, and information. I often participate in Twitter Chats, visit blogs, and follow Educators online. I believe this helps me to grow professionally, and continually learn. I hope that the Inspirations Memo can provide you with ideas, information and resources you can use. I will aspire to be the Lead Learner for our Campus, and I hope you will join me in learning.
