STAFF PROFILE OF THE WEEK

  • Rob Speas

     

    We are kicking off a weekly staff spotlight with our new principal, Rob Speas. This is Mr. Speas’ 20th year in education, but his first year as a Hawk. “My favorite thing about being a principal is that I get to interact with everyone in the school - kids, teachers, support staff, and parents,” Mr. Speas said. A career highlight for him was being in the Leadership Knoxville Class of 2018. He is an avid Vol fan and lives by the motto “Get comfortable being uncomfortable.” A Brentwood, Tennessee native, Mr. Speas holds a B.S. in Chemistry and an M.S. in Education, both from the University of Tennessee, as well as an Ed.S. in Educational Administration from Lincoln Memorial University. He is currently working toward his doctorate from the University of the Cumberlands. Mr. Speas began his career as a science teacher at Oak Ridge High School. He joined Knox County Schools in 2000 as a teacher at Austin-East. A member of the 2010 Leadership Academy, Mr. Speas served as an assistant principal at Austin-East, Fulton, and L&N STEM Academy before being named principal of Fulton in 2012, where he served until this summer.
