Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Randy Weidner

This will be my 35th year in education, both as a teacher & coach.  My first ten years were at Wheeling High School, with the past 24 at Cyd Lash Academy in Gages Lake.  I have taught everyone from the founder of YouTube to the local mayor, and helped the football team to a #22 national ranking by USA Today; the basketball team to a CAAEL state championship; and the baseball team to an IHSA state championship.  

In addition to students & athletes, I have mentored ten new teachers and supervised six student teachers.  While I have seen quite a bit in my years in education, I always look forward to seeing more...I'm sure the 2023-24 school year will provide just that!
