Izadora McGawley is a senior at High Tech High Chula Vista.  She has been an active member of her project-based learning community since she began at HTH in the 6th grade.  She immediately became involved in the High Tech High student ambassador program and got to share her strong beliefs in what her school was doing to promote equity amongst their students and teachers.  As a sophomore in high school, she felt that one thing that was lacking in her progressive educational experience was culturally responsive curriculum.  With her two closest friends she founded High Tech High’s first ethnic studies class.  She has been teaching and facilitating a faculty approved ethnic studies elective since then and is now working with other educators to find ways to implement more permanent structures for culturally responsive pedagogy and ethnic studies within the High Tech High organization.
Iza is a proud 17 year old woman of mixed heritage with roots in the San Diego Chican@x community.  From the love and support she was given by her family and community leaders, she is now able to feel empowered in her identity.  She hopes and feels obligated to spread this feeling of pride and empowerment to other young people of color as they work together in navigating the pursuit of social and personal progress.

Ana De Almeida Amaral is a senior and student activist at High Tech High Chula Vista. As a 10th grader, she co-founded the first Ethnic Studies course on her campus and continues to teach it as a completely student-run elective. Ana's advocacy is inspired by her belief of using education to promote cultural and racial solidarity to end systemic oppression. Ana believes all students have the right to the empowerment that an Ethnic Studies class provides and advocates for it throughout the HTH organization.

Part lounge, part studio, the Deep Dive Den (D3) invites attendees to learn from educational leaders. One of the goals of the deeper learning conference is to propel the deeper learning movement by connecting attendees to inspirational ideas and people. Den talks aim to be a conversational style talk where a pair of educational leaders interview one another about a topic that is of importance to their organization, the deeper learning movement or perhaps to the future of education. No slide decks no prepared talks–just conversations on what matters most.
