Providing valuable and enjoyable cultural teaching to adopted children is the mission of our Joyous Chinese Cultural Center (JCCC, www.joyouscenter.org). Every year, the JCCC organizes several training sessions to help our teachers improve their skills and knowledge in order to better fulfill the JCCC mission. On August 18, 2012, in order to get ready for the opening of the 2012-2013 school year, JCCC invited the preschool director and kindergarten teacher from Mark Hopkins Elementary to JCCC’s teachers training. They shared their years of teaching experience on classroom management and skills to breach cultural differences for better academic achievement. In the afternoon, Ms. Gwen, one of our own outstanding language teachers offered an online training course. Our teachers have all enjoyed the training greatly and feel encouraged and well prepared for another exciting school year.
