FACTS: 1 in 4 young men of color will be incarcerated in their lifetime. Only 6% make up the college population, while 40% are in prison. Boys of color are three times likely to be suspended in kindergarten and will receive the most special education services including being placed in self-contained classes. In Brownsville, only 32% of residents have a college degree, 14% have a college degree, and 80% of New York State prisoners are from within our community. 
I opened a school to close a prison by implementing  innovative curriculum and taking our scholars to the places they belong, in addition to equipping their parents with the knowledge and experiences they need to best support their children. I want my young men to know that their lives have value and they are intelligent human beings who deserve the chance to #BeGREAT! When I see my scholars, I see their brilliance, potential, and desire to want to be the best👨🏾‍🎓. So I challenge the narrative that says they are “too defiant”, “too unfocused”, “too slow”, “too aggressive”, but in actuality many are bored, creative, insightful, misunderstood, abused, dealing with death and issues of abandonment. 
It takes a village in partnership with families who are willing to show up to be part of the process of raising our young kings 🤴🏾, because our first lessons and high expectations are taught at home. Thank you @harvard for always making  the @motthallbridges visit exceptional!

“Ms. Lopez, thank you for believing in me and bringing your scholars to Harvard. I’m going to be the first person to graduate college in my family. But I know I have to work hard because this is going to be the place I go to become a scientist when I graduate high school and I want you there to see me.” -6th grade scholar @motthallbridges 
Thank you Brandon @humansofny and every single person who believes in the power of education. Your contributions help to empower our children, take them to the places they belong and give the access they need to break the glass ceiling. All WE need to do is believe in them and offer experiences they deserve, no matter their zip codes. Thank you @Harvard @harvardlocal for your partnership and bridging the gap in education!

“You see things; and say ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and say ‘Why Not?’” -George Bernard Shaw

By the time Brandon entered 6th grade @motthallbridges he was labeled a “troubled kid” with special needs. Bigger than most scholars his size, he had a quiet temper that could be explosive when provoked. Misguided and misunderstood, he joined a gang at very young age and was suspended from the time he was in third grade, which I found out after he had a physical altercation with one of his peers in our school. On paper Brandon fit the description of what many would label a future criminal. But I refused to believe that or give up on him; he was required to stay every day after school with me. Even though he was banned from most activities until his behavior improved, we talked about his future, personal challenges, and had honest conversations about how society would view him as a threat because of his past that would land him in jail or dead. For three years, Brandon had a safe space to stay, which kept him off the street and less active in the gang. On my toughest days, he like so many scholars picked me up when I was down. Now I am proud to share that he is graduating high school and going to study business at the University of Bridgeport in August 2018!!!!! 👨🏾‍🎓🙌🏾 Here’s what every adult should know, children know who believe in them and those who do not. Learn to: listen, build relationships, and nurture them to BE GREAT! 👑 [🎥👈🏾 ] 
Thank you Brandon for trusting me and proving that no one should ever question my “Why Not?” 💜#theLopezEffect #OccupySchools #BlackBoyJoy #BrownsvilleBrilliance #BetterMakeRoom #CollegeBound #ReachHigher #SpecialEducation #Teacher #Education

Being in the room with powerful women of color being honored, sitting at a table with @richelieudennis the founder @sundialfamily and now owner of @essence magazine, along with the @emmetdennis and Latraviette Smith, was an experience the girls needed and will never forget.

This morning I met with one of my graduates after he reached out yesterday via Facebook. He was a model scholar who never complained or gave any trouble, but when his grades began to slip, I took notice. It became evident that the days he was absent he took on the responsibility of taking care of his mother and grandparents who were sick. He told me that one day he would design his own footwear after showing me numerous sketches he had done to get his mind off of his daily stress. 
After he graduated I hoped that one day He would return to tell me that he graduated high school and was on his way to pursuing his dream. But after years of asking his whereabouts, his peers finally told me he had dropped out of school to work. Today I learned that upon this scholar’s graduation, life became difficult and he was forced to get a job after having to moving from his Brooklyn home, which made made traveling and keeping his placement in the high school he enjoyed, a hardship. Not wanting to ask for help, he earned his GED and took care of his grandad until he passed away. 
He now has a dream to open up his own business, so we came up with a plan, enrolled him in a course and through my contacts I found someone to mentor him in the area of creating his own t-shirt apparel line. 
My scholars trust that I will always be there to help them, even after they graduate. For me this is more than just a “job”, it my life’s purpose. 💜#theLopezEffect #OccupySchools #HerStory

Growing in Brooklyn, @elementsofawoman_blog @sharifasays and I would always look forward to Easter. First we would go to church before heading to Coney Island to rock our new spring outfits. Now as adults, we’ve learned that coming together as a family to have a meal and reminisce about the good ol’ days is priceless. Remember that no matter what you may be going through, it’s important to surround yourself with people who bring you joy and help to make life better. I hope you had a great day spending it with your family and friends 💜 @_love_lee_715 #theLopezEffect #Family #Easter #Brooklyn #CrownHeights

All I could do is give myself permission to take a minute and close my eyes 😴. Throughout my career I have  been stretched beyond my limits, but these past 24 hours have truly defined the term “March Madness”. Mental health is IMPORTANT and NECESSARY! Our children are in crisis and fighting systems filled with people who don’t listen, don’t get it, and don’t want to be responsible is exhausting. This is between serving as an advocate for my parents to demand adequate mental health services and having to be relentless in holding folks accountable because they would rather wait for something detrimental to happen, before they take me take seriously😡 Imagine, people doubting what I have to say, as if I were new to my job🤨Everyday I add another position to my title as Principal, not because I want to, but I have to 😞 #theLopezEffect #OccupySchools #mentalhealth

“There are days when it’s hard to have that Black Girl Magic, especially when I feel like being Black girl invisible. You can’t imagine how heavy the burden becomes when you fight for children who have been marginalized, who society treats as the forgotten...Our school day begins at 8am, but on Friday by 8:15, I had 4 young ladies in my office who could not tell me that they believed that they were beautiful or why they should love themselves. They could not see that they are beautiful, phenomenal, young queens who have a future filled with possibilities. For an hour I spoke to those young ladies...imagine a Principal taking an hour out of the day to talk to children, when the pressures from they system is to look at data, focus evaluations, and be in compliance. But I chose them. I chose to listen to them and spend time, because what they needed was me to be there for them.” On Saturday, I was recognized by the @schomburgcenter for my work in the  empowerment of children during their ceremony to Salute Black Women of the African Diaspora. There was a moment when I choked up because all I could think about was our girls who are suffering in silence, in disbelief that they are beautiful enough, willing to compromise themselves, self-mutilate or self-medicate because they feel unloved and invisible. I accepted the award alongside some of the most brilliant Black women making a difference in their communities, inspired to know that in this work I am not the only one trying to give voice to the voiceless. Our community needs US to step up and show up because OURS not them, theirs or they, OUR children need us to be the example and the village that takes care of it’s own 💜 #theLopezEffect #HerStory #OccupySchools #womenshistorymonth #community #Leader #BrownsvilleBrilliance #education #BacktoBack #BlackGirlsMagic #AfroLatina #teacherlife

When Steven Laxton reached out, he said he was working on a book of photographs capturing interesting people. To be honest I didn’t really know the direction, but loved the vision. He spent a few hours at the school and we talked about what it has taken  to Build a Bridge to Brilliance despite the ill-effects of vioence and poverty. That was last minute year This is the first time I had the chance to see the photo and I must say it is truly captivating. THANK YOU 📸@steven_laxton!!!!!

On a day we are all thinking about our kids and school safety, this inspiring school principal from Brownsville Brooklyn comes to mind. Nadia Lopez opened Mott Hall Bridges Academy school in 2010. Originally trained as a nurse Lopez brought her strong-willed compassion to Brownsville to be a school principal. In early 2015, Brandon Stanton (the photographer with Humans of New York) photographed a student of hers who said she was his biggest inspiration. When people from around the world discovered the dire need of this safe space in Brownsville (an area considered the riskiest in Brooklyn for children to grow up in, due to it's high crime and poverty rates)  they donated $1.2 million. Two years later, Lopez has worked with the likes of Michelle Obama, Jada Pinkett Smith, and even has a viral TED Talk. Still, when one is with her, she’s just an amazing principal who sees her students as her kin.

There will be people who will underestimate your talents because they don’t understand or believe in you. ◽️
There are days you are going to have to fight to be seen, heard, and respected.
◽️
There are moments when you are going to want to give up because everyone’s opinions, negative energy, and jealousy will become louder than your faith.
◽️
But YOU have to BELIEVE in yourself, STAND in your truth, and RECOGNIZE your own gifts. Despite the naysayers and dream stealers, I opened a school, authored two books, became an entrepreneur, and have traveled the world to speak. Inside of you there are superpowers that make you brilliant, phenomenal, and dope. Tap into your own MAGIC and create your own MOVEMENT! DON’T GIVE UP! DON’T SETTLE! ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOU! 💜 #theLopezEffect #Faith #BlackGirlMagic #Author #Speaker #Educator #Visionary #AfroLatina #LopezTravels #LopezSpeaks

I was asked to join a panel about gun violence in US schools @gesf in Dubai, alongside students from Parkland and fellow @teacherprize finalists, moderated my @ghoshworld. As a school leader, I was able to give my perspective on preparing a school for a possible threat, while serving within a community that faces gun violence and post traumatic stress disorders. I believe we should not have to wait until there are shootings near or in our schools to discuss the lack of policies on gun control, mental health issues, and the need for our children and staff to feel safe safe. 
The strength that Kevin Trejos and Lewis Mizen (@lord.mizen) demonstrated just by speaking on their experience is commendable, which is why we should all take note that advocacy with action and community support can be impactful.

I was asked to join a panel about gun violence in US schools @gesf in Dubai, alongside students from Parkland and fellow @teacherprize finalists, moderated my @ghoshworld. As a school leader, I was able to give my perspective on preparing a school for a possible threat, while serving within a community that faces gun violence and post traumatic stress disorders. I believe we should not have to wait until there are shootings near or in our schools to discuss the lack of policies on gun control, mental health issues, and the need for our children and staff to feel safe safe. The strength that Kevin Trejos and Lewis Mizen (@lord.mizen ) demonstrated just by speaking on their experience is commendable, which is why we should all take note that advocacy with action and community support can be impactful.
