We are excited to present these two speakers for Istation’s second Educator Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Weaver is currently the director of school programs and principal of Chief Tahgee Elementary Academy, a Shoshoni language immersion charter school located on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation in southeast Idaho. He has an educational and practical background in motivational theory, sport psychology, educational leadership, educational administration, and instructional technology.

Although Mr. Weaver’s primary teaching experience has been in middle and high schools, he has also taught at the elementary school and university levels. His prior experience as a coach, paraprofessional, Safe Schools Coordinator, teacher, and administrator has provided him with a unique perspective of the educational process.
