Welcome Students A-D!
How to contact Mr. Flatter
I happily take phone calls and will answer the phone if I am available. However, phone messages may not be checked until the end of the school day. Generally, speaking email is best when trying to reach me. The nature of email helps me to prioritize messages and requests. You will likely receive a response within the same day, however depending on the time of day and/or the nature of the request you may not receive a response until the following business day. If three or more days pass without a reply, please send another message. I pride myself on communication and do my best however the busy nature of our building it does happen that messages are missed.
About Mr. Flatter
I've been a counselor at Seaholm since 2009 and staff member in the Birmingham Public Schools since 2006 (BCS). I began my professional counseling career at Redford Union High School in Redford Twp. However, I have been counseling at the Master's level since 2000, where I worked with college students and older adults in the Adult Career Counseling Center on campus at Oakland University as a Graduate Assistant. I graduated from Oakland University with a Master's Degree in Counseling in 2002. Previous to that I worked in the business world as an Assistant Project Manager at Ross Roy. In 1998, I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology, and a Minor in Communication.
What I am most proud of in my career in Birmingham is that I am a graduate from Seaholm High School and am so honored to be able to give back to the community that has given me so much. I was raised in Beverly Hills and in 2010 moved back the neighborhood in which I grew up. I love that I live in the community that I work, it's a wonderful connection to have and know that everything that I do is connected to who I am and where I live.
I am married to my wonderful wife Lindsay and we are blessed with two children, Finnian (6yo) and Tierney (3yo). You may be aware that we lost our beautiful baby girl in 2012, Delaney Rose, who continues to touch our hearts every day.
