The Million Dollar Story
Lloyd Hopkins is the Executive Director and Founder of Million Dollar Teacher Project, 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 everyday. Lloyd has worked in and around the education system in varied capacities. He has worked with youth offenders, dropout prevention and ran 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.
