Product Details


“The story of Mott Hall Bridges Academy is the story of American education. Nadia Lopez stands on the front line of the fight to educate America’s children.”
Brandon Stanton, author of Humans of New York

“Essential…the key to academic excellence begins with an open mind.”

A valuable depiction of what it takes for principals and teachers to reach children in the most troubled communities…will give readers even more reasons to ask what we as a society are doing to support the thousands of educators who labor in obscurity, trying to help the nation’s most vulnerable children.”
—Dale Russakoff, The New York Times Book Review
“Nadia Lopez’s efforts to support the needs of children in one of the most under-resourced communities in the country should serve as a reminder to all that what’s required to open pathways to excellence are educators who unlock potential. We should all be committed to living Nadia’s legacy. She founded a school to strengthen a community and our country . . . what will you do?”
―David J. Johns, Executive Director, White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans

“For anyone in education who thinks a student is beyond learning, Lopez’s story will prove them wrong. The narrative demonstrates a clear progression from a woman’s dream for a model school to that reality, which has made a huge impact in its neighborhood and across the country.”
