Advisory Board Member
Lloyd Hopkins is the Executive Director and Founder of Million Dollar Teacher Project (MDTP), an organization aimed at increasing support for teachers inside and outside of the classroom, raising the profile of highly effective teachers and drastically improving teacher compensation to bring the teaching profession to the prestigious level it deserves so ALL students are able to receive excellent instruction every day. Lloyd has worked in and around the education system in various capacities. He has worked with youth offenders, dropout prevention and after-school recreation programs. But it was his time spent as a teaching assistant in the Alhambra School District that impacted him the most. The combination of these experiences led to the creation of MDTP because he recognized that if we truly want to help students reach their full potential, we must have amazing educators in every classroom.
