Mr. Elmer is very proud to be partnered with Dr. Chris Weber.

A native of Southern California, Dr. Chris Weber has been in service to community and country his entire life. A graduate of the US Air Force Academy, Chris flew C-141s during his military career. A former high school, middle school, and elementary school teacher and administrator, Chris has had a great deal of success helping students who historically underachieve learn at extraordinarily high levels.

As a principal and school district leader in California and Chicago, Chris and his colleagues have developed systems of Response to Intervention that have led to heretofore unrealized levels of learning at schools across the country.

Chris is a best selling author of several wonderful books. These books have sold well over 150,000 copies worldwide. In addition, Chris and his colleagues’ article in Educational Leadership, “The Why Behind RTI,” was the most viewed article on the publication’s web site in 2010. Chris is recognized as an expert in behavior, mathematics, and Response to Intervention. He consults and presents nationally to audiences on important educational topics, including:

  • Change and RTI – Preparing for Productive Teams
