Mr. Paul Gleason

Hello! This is my sixth year at West Port High School and I love what I do here! I currently teach Chemistry and Physical Science. Previously, I have also taught AP Environmental Science, Environmental Science and Liberal Arts Math. I have recently completed my professional educator's certification as part of my certifcations including teaching 5-9 Mathematics, 5-9 General Science, and 6-12 Chemistry. I intend on competing the 6-12 Physics and 6-12 Matematics certifications by the end of the year. 

In addition to teaching, I also am the Head Coach of the Girls Soccer Program and Sponser of Science National Honor Society.

I am originally from Pensacola, FL and have completed coursework at seven different institutes of higher education, most notably at the University of South Florida and the University of Florida. When I am not teaching, I enjoy being outside, learning about the many species of marine life in Florida or just relaxing. I used to play and referee soccer, but now I just enjoy attending and spectating a game or two.

I am ALWAYS available for help during ALPHA Time, no matter if you need help in math or science or if you're my student or not, my door is always open to those who wish to improve themselves and their studies!

Come see me anytime in the JROTC hallway (Building 9, room 017)!
