The past 4 days have been intense in both amazing ways and devastating ones as well. Kicking off the Spring 2018 semester of my Doctoral program at @columbia @teacherscollege was awesome โค๏ธ...so grateful to God for amazing professors, content, and experiences that are exceptional in every way. At the same time, received heart-wrenching news of a cousin of mine being murdered in my hometown that saddened me immensely. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ Toggling wrapping up classes with grief and preparation for a major speech this week in a space that holds tremendous symbolism ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ, I feel so blessed to this morning to spend time learning from Dr. Nadia Lopez @thelopezeffect , the incredible and award-winning Founder & Principal of Mott Hall Bridges Academy @motthallbridges in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Observing teachers in action (such strong & culturally responsive classrooms โœŠ๐Ÿพ), studying artifacts (best practices), and having 1-on-1 time and deep dialogue with her and incredible AP was so special ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• and unforgettable. Remember watching her accept her @blackgirlsrock award on BET and her speech. When God intends something, He ensures your paths cross with precisely who youโ€™re supposed to connect with, when, how, and in ways that give Him glory. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ @k.allen.consulting #education #brooklyn #nyc #schools #blackwomen #principals #leadership #change #love #consulting

โ€œ...itโ€™s not normal for people to harm other people, we should never feel that it is, even though itโ€™s happening around us.โ€ -@_marlonpeterson @decarceratedpodcast 
Too often many of my  scholars believe that the sound of sirens, living in poverty, and going to prison is normal. It takes courageous and honest conversations with our scholars that not only acknowledges the violence they experience, but also to provide strategies to navigate these circumstances. Thank you Marlon for always supporting @motthallbridges! #theLopezEffect #IMATTERbecause #TheWritetoHeal #education #OccupySchools #BrownsvilleBrilliance #BePrecedential

A couple of months ago I said that NBA player @ekpeudoh @utahjazz had officially joined #TeamMHBA! I am excited to share that we have launched the #EkpesJrBookClub @motthallbridges ๐Ÿ“š Our first book is โ€œKindredโ€ by Octavia Butler, a sci-fi thriller that is engaging and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Our goal is cultivate a love for reading in a meaningful way that allows for a rich discussion beyond the classroom and around the world ๐ŸŒŽ Most importantly our scholars get to see an athlete who is truly invested in their achievement and wants to see them succeed.

Five years ago, when Emely was in 7th grade she dealt with issues of depression and self-mutilation due to low self-esteem. After the guidance counselor, Mr. McLeod brought it to my attention, we spoken, then called mom and got her the help she needed. Through therapy, a loving school community, and parents who worked to build Emelyโ€™s confidence, she has blossomed like the rose tattooed covering the marks on her arm, into a remarkable young woman. Now a senior in HS, Emely joined me today for a InstaStory and FaceBook Live to share her experience and wisdom. We laughed, loved, and lived in this momentโ€”just like old times [Swipe ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿพ] ๐Ÿ‘€ the ๐ŸŽฅ FB Live link in bio
โ—ป๏ธ
The most important advice we shared:
1. Listen to young people and build relationships with them
2. Mental health is extremely important and not something you should be ashamed to seek.
3. Find your passion and the beauty in life.
4. Create safe spaces that inspire, empower, and offer unconditional love ๐Ÿ’œ

Thank you for tuning in ๐Ÿ“บ#theLopezEffect #theCall #OccupySchools #StandinyourTruth #WinningWisdomWednesday #BrownsvilleBrilliance
