Videos Featuring Mr. Weber
During his time in Williamston High School, Patrick Weber created a school project for Spanish 2, featuring a prop named "Bono el Mono". Filming of the project took place from June 4th of 1998 - June 9th of 1998. This project was written to a VHS tape, and sat abandoned in Williamston High School until it was found by members of Willemstan in the 2019 Salvage Operation. Known mostly as the "Weber Project" by members of Willemstan, the old project quickly became one of the most memorable videos in Willemstan's history.

Career at Williamston High School
Before returning to WHS, Pat Weber was a Special Education Teacher at Madison Shannon Palmer High School, from the Fall of 2003 - May of 2005. Before that, he served as a 2003 Teach For America Corps Member. Mr. Weber was a Social Studies Teacher at Williamston High School from 2007 - 2013, after teaching Psychology at the middle school, and then again from 2016 - 2017. He taught the following classes: U.S. Government & Politics and Comparative Government & Politics, Civics, and World History. He is also responsible for establishing the Advanced Placement Government & Politics Courses during 2008 & 2009.
Career at Williamston Middle School
At WMS, Patrick Weber began as a Behavior Intervention Specialist (Vice Principal), from the Fall of 2013 - Spring of 2017. This means that he was both the BI Specialist at the middle school, and a Social Studies teacher at the high school at the same time. Later, he became the 8th Grade US History Teacher atWilliamston Middle School at the Fall of 2017 - Spring of 2018. However, he took a two and some month long leave during this year, and as a result was replaced by a long term substitute for a good chunk of the year, until he returned. He quit the school after the end of that year. It seems he was intentionally reducing his performance. It is also rumored that his performance as a teacher was so bad that he was supervised by a math teacher at WMS, Mrs. Clark.
Reception by Students of Williamston Middle School
When Mr. Weber returned from his exile, he changed his teaching style drastically. Weber began to use only Google Classroom to teach. Every day, he would say "Open Google Classroom!", and post a new assignment as a Google Document full of questions, which were just copy pasted from Quizlet. When the work was due, he would not look at the assignment, all students were given a one hundred percent regardless of completion. Additionally, he used Google Forms to assign tests, which was very easy to cheat off of, but many still failed because Google Forms requires your answer to be exactly what Mr. Weber has. Pat Weber also assigned a final 100 point project about a new technology developed in the civil war, worth 100 points. Every single person got a 100%. This new teaching style was very ineffective, as the students that year learned next to nothing from him, it was so bad in fact, that his class never completed the Civil War unit. Needless to say, his method of teaching generated a lot of controversy. The majority of students resented Mr. Weber's lazy behavior and his Google Forms tests, and called for the long term sub to be reinstated. However, many students also agreed that Mr. Weber's lazy behavior was to their immediate benefit, as everyone was guaranteed an A in the class if they pressed the "turn in" button on Google Classroom every day. The use of Google Classroom inspired the Silly School for Cosmic Children and his lazy teaching provided time to further the development of what would become Willemstan.
During 2015, Mr. Weber made $50 from supplemental employment, $4,013 as a coach, and $64,955 from teaching. In 2016, Mr. Weber made $100 from supplemental employment, $4,013 as a coach, and $67,543 from teaching. In 2018, Mr. Weber made $60,152 annually. In 2019, Mr. Weber made $62,875 annually, but he did depart from the school in 2019 so it is unknown if he actually got all this.
Career at Immaculate Heart and Departure from WCS
In the Fall of 2018, Mr. Weber took over the 6th Grade Social Studies position, which was left vacant by a retirement. While he held this position, another teacher in the middle school acted as an assistant and supervisor for his classes. Furthermore, the long term substitute took over the 8th Grade US History position, formerly held by Weber. Based on this evidence, it seems the complaints of the student body were heard. She still holds the job to this day. In early 2019, Mr. Weber deserted his new position (demotion) and became Principal of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, a nearby Roman Catholic school, which he actually attended in his elementary years. Funny how Mr. Weber has a habit of teaching at schools he went to himself.
