Educators Rising California

There’s power in teaching

Meet Luis Diaz, Educators Rising California’s first Student President!

Luis is a senior at Century High School in Santa Ana. He has been a member of his EdRising CA chapter for more than a year, and not only competed in our statewide competition last year, he won first place in California in the Creative Lecture competition. Luis is passionate about speech and debate and plans to become a speech and debate and U.S. history teacher.

Luis has been gaining a wealth of teaching experience during his high school years. He has been a tutor to first graders, an AVID tutor to his peers and a member of the TEACH Academy.

Luis is hoping to help expand student interest in the EdRising CA state competitions and get more California students to compete at the national level. We look forward to working with Luis and the rest of the inaugural class of Student Officers!
