Linnea Garrett is the principal of Chicago Tech Academy High School, and under her leadership, they have become the only high school in the district implementing whole school project-based learning. In the five years since her arrival they have witnessed a 30 percent increase in the number of freshman on track (a US metric that assesses potential to move to a four year college degree program) and a 20 percent increase in the four-year cohort graduation rate.

She has been profiled by The Atlantic magazine and Education Changemakers latest book Dream Team and is a Deeper Learning Equity Fellow. She holds two Masters degrees in education and leadership and has dedicated her career to helping students in the most challenging of situations.
