Kim Williams Delivers Training
PATHS® trainers from PEW traveled from United States to China to support the implementation of the PATHS® curriculum. Ms. Kim Williams arrived in Shanghai twice in 2016 to deliver the classic 2-day trainings to more than 60 teachers. She also gave a presentation on the recent findings about PATHS® and SEL to all the head teachers in Putuo district at a district-wide PATHS® promotion conference. The deputy director of Putuo Education Bureau, Mr. Qu Zhijun, attended the conference. Prior to that, Ms. Susan Gibson came and delivered a two-day training as well. That was the first time that SEL trainer officially introduced PATHS® to Chinese schools. As the need is growing, we anticipate that a China-based trainer will be trained for future expansion.
