Lloyd’s passion in life emerged when he became an educator in one of the top charter schools in New York where he taught Math and Science in Grades 6-8. In Lloyd’s position as an educator, his gifts and talents were truly brought to light when he mentored and transformed many children who were struggling behaviorally and academically in school into children who developed a higher level of ambition and enthusiasm toward learning.

Sparked by a powerful vision to impact many families whose children are challenged cognitively and academically in Frisco Independent School District and neighboring ISD school districts, he and his wife Chinwe opened GradePower Learning in Frisco to serve the community and foster a learning environment that is fun, engaging and interactive.
