About Million Dollar Teacher Project
Million Dollar Teacher Project is a 501 (C) 3 that was founded by Lloyd Hopkins in October 2016 as a mechanism to strengthen schools in Arizona. The work of the organization revolves around the principle that the most cost-effective and sustainable way to improve schools is to direct more resources and support directly to the teaching profession so schools have the ability to attract great talent in every classroom. The mission of MDTP is to elevate the teaching profession through increased recognition, compensation and support. Their vision is to create a world where every student is taught by a highly trained, qualified, understanding and engaged teacher. Recognition, Compensation and Support are the three pillars that we develop community-centered, grassroots approaches around to push the needle forward in the teaching profession, schools and the education system.
