Robert Weekley

GED /Homework Help Tutor, Brighton

Hello, my name is Robert Weekley, the General Education Development (GED) and Homework Help Tutor at the Brighton Reservation for The Education Department.  I am from Clewiston, Florida graduating from Clewiston High.  I furthered my educational endeavors by attending Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where I obtained an Athletic Scholarship for football and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.  Following graduation, I returned home and was afforded the opportunity of teaching at Clewiston Middle School.  I worked at Clewiston Middle School for three (3) years, and served as the Head Football Coach. 

Being a teacher and coach has fueled my passion for the youth of today who will eventually become the future leaders of tomorrow.  Being able to mentor, teach, inspire and motivate them during their formative years also drives me to be a positive role model.  I am also of the belief that everyone makes mistakes and is not perfect; which can then shape the foundation for individuals to become better and allow each of us the ability of trying again and again.  Like the saying goes, "when the going gets tough, the tough get going," and the tough sometimes go back to the drawing board several times before getting it right, before they reach their goals and can celebrate their successesIf you say, “I can’t,” I will work with you until you realize that you can!

I enjoy helping students develop a love of learning and plan on implementing life skills and enhancing the knowledge of those I am privileged to encounter.  What I love most about teaching, is giving back to the students from the community where I grew up and making an impact in their lives.  I want them to know that someone, just like them, can make the best out of their lives.  Enthusiasm, motivation, and dedication are three key elements I possess that helps make me be an effective teacher.  I look forward to sharing my excitement for learning with my students and being a part of the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Education Department and the Brighton community.

Hobbies: Hog Hunting, Fishing, Family Time and Traveling.
