Upon graduating from Brigham Young University in 1992, Dr. Weiler taught history at Orem High School for seven years. In 2000, Dr. Weiler left the classroom and became an assistant principal at American Fork Junior High School. In 2003, Dr. Weiler pursued a Ph.D. at Virginia Tech and continued in administration in Blacksburg. After finishing the doctorate in 2007, Dr. Weiler accepted a position at the University of Northern Colorado, where he remained until coming to BYU in 2019.
I strive to inspire and empower aspiring educational leaders to be outstanding administrators who rely on the teachings of Christ and work tirelessly to support the learning of all students.
I subscribe to a pedagogical approach that actively engages learners in the learning process. Specifically, I rely on sustained group work and learning activities that afford students the opportunity to develop a degree of expertise related to the curriculum being studied. In addition, I lead discussions that encourage students to wrestle with applying various theoretical concepts to the reality of being a school leader in the 21st Century.
Currently, I am collaborating with colleagues across the nation on an array of research topics, including: the impact of school finance litigation on funding for public education, P-20 administrators' responses to outlier situations (specifically, pandemics), the practice of arming educators to increase school safety, and school facilities.
