Virgil (Ed) and Pat Flathouse, the first of four sons in a family of educators.  Moved to Austin, Texas in 1971 where his father was offered a teaching position at the University of Texas.  Began pre-school at an early age with his brother Scott, and then enrolled in Eanes ISD, where he graduated twelve years later after an enriching educational journey in a school district recognized for its excellence. 
By then he had two more brothers, and his father had become an associate commissioner at The Texas Education Agency after six years of being the superintendent of the Texas School for the Deaf.  Craig lived on the campus of the Texas School for the Deaf for several years, and became familiar with the educational and social hardships the deaf experienced.  This had an influence in shaping his future in education.   
After graduation, Craig worked in a variety of jobs, from fast-food jobs to restaurant management until he decided to move to Lubbock, Texas for a change in direction in his life.  His father was the Director of the Educational Service Center in Lubbock at that time, and his mother was a first grade teacher.  Craig accepted a job as a school bus driver while enrolling in college credit courses and his career in education began.  From that position he moved into technology, subsequently returning to Austin and accepting a job with the Austin School District.  That led into advances, and a position with Lake Travis ISD as the Technology Director.  From there the moved to Ingleside ISD as the Technology Director, then after seven years he moved to Runge ISD.  After two years there, he accepted the position of Technology Director at Marion ISD.  In each of those positions he brought an understanding of the educational process to the respective situations, and succeeded in significantly improving the use of technology in educational practices.  After Marion ISD, he accepted a position in Wimberley ISD, where he remained until April 8th of this year when he left to seek a position better suited for his competencies and experience.  He has two grown children, with one in the military.
