Weeks started his career as a social studies teacher in Escambia County and then spent several years in Navarre and Milton teaching, coaching baseball and football and serving as a dean and assistant principal. As he moves into his first year as principal of Gulf Breeze High, he has high hopes of what the future holds for the school.
Weeks’ philosophy on education
“I value education and expect excellence from myself,” he said. Weeks also expects excellence from his students and believes teachers and administrators get what they ask for from students. “If we demand the very best from them, they’ll give it to you,” he said.
He said that although GBHS is constantly above average in academic testing and athletics, his goal is to set the bar even higher.
“My goal is to set the standard for all the schools in Florida… from college placement to athletics and state testing, we will strive to be the best,” he said.
