Principal's Message

Hello Stingrays, I am Clint Whitfield, and I am the principal at Breakfast Point Academy. I am so excited to be your child's principal! I just to tell you a little bit about myself... I grew up in Long Beach, Mississippi and went to Long Beach High School, Home of the Bearcats. I went to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and played baseball for two years. I then played for one year at Mississippi College before transferring to Southern Miss, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in History. Go EAGLES! 

I moved to Panama City, Florida in 2005, and taught at Haney Technical High School for one year, and then I taught for 6 years at Mosley High School. I taught History, coached basketball, baseball, girls weightlifting, and sponsored Beta Club.​

My administrative career began at Breakfast Point Academy in 2012 as an Assistant Administrator, and I became an Assistant Principal there in 2015. I became principal at Tommy Smith Elementary in 2016, and I am now returning to Breakfast Point as your principal. 

​"Every child, every day" is the motto and creed that I live by each day. I truly believe that every child is capable of learning, and that our school has the tools and strategies available to produce young, virtuous students who can thrive socially, academically, and responsibly. I ​
believe the keystone to our students' success is student engagement and making our school a safe, fun, and amazing place to learn. My teachers are dedicated to the success of our children, and it is important to all of us that we provide your children what they need.

I envision Breakfast Point as a place that students​, staff, teachers, parents, and the community come together as a team and a family to make this school a great educational center, and at the heart of it all, is student success and achievement.

I look forward to building on the foundations of excellence at Breakfast Point, and leading us into a new era of academic distinction among Bay County, and throughout Florida.

 

​Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you or your child as we work together for our children's future.
 

​Breakfast Point... To the Top!!!​
