Better Leaders Better Schools guest ChadWeiden is a proud graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign with a BA in History and Teaching of Social Studies. He received his Masters in Educational Leadership from National Louis University. Before working with the incredible faculty and students at Edgebrook Elementary, Chad began his career teaching middle school in Georgia at Sweetwater Middle School in Gwinnett County and at Drew Charter School in the East Lake Community outside Atlanta. He moved back to Chicago to become the founding social studies teacher at KIPP Ascend Charter School on Chicago's West Side. And while teaching, Chad served as managing director and co-founder of White Horse Theater Company in Chicago from 2001-2006. 
 
In 2004, he was asked to join the staff of Social Justice High School in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood, which was born out of a community-based hunger strike in 2001. During his 7 years at Social Justice, Chad served as social studies teacher, assistant principal, and principal and was proud to see 95% of all graduates accepted to college. 
 
Missing his elementary school roots, Chad accepted the position of Assistant Principal at Blaine Elementary School in the Lakeview Neighborhood in Chicago. While at Blaine, he worked with an outstanding group of students, parents and teachers to ensure Blaine remained one of the top performing neighborhood school in the city of Chicago. 
 
In his free time, Chad is an adjunct faculty member at National Louis University in the Educational Leadership Department. He is an avid runner, triathlete, epic reader and dog lover. But the center of his life is his family and his beautiful son Uriah.
