Angelina Hopkins, Ed.D

For more than 27 years, I was involved in the supervision and training of classroom teachers and principals on the use of instructional strategies to help students of various cultures and under­represented minority backgrounds. I earned a Doctor of Education degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Virginia Tech in 2001.  To nurture my passion for helping others reach their potential, I serve as a member of the Board of Directors for the Schoolhouse Museum in Isle of Wight, Virginia, the Development Committee for the Southside Boys and Girls Club, and LEAD Hampton Roads.   My first book (2011) was written to speak to the importance of managing challenging experiences for positive outcomes.  I am a John Maxwell, Independent Certified Coach/Trainer/Speaker, and the founder and CEO of the non­profit, TROY Group. TROY stands for Transitional Resources & Opportunities for Youths.  The programming focus for the TROY Group includes Leadership /Workplace Readiness, Targeted Academic Skills, Innovative Technology Experiences, and Literacy/Scholastic Support.
