Staff News: Paul Williams Attended Master Class for the Academy of Teachers

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Manhattan Country School’s Technology Teacher Paul Williams was selected by The Academy of Teachers to participate in a master class led by social media expert Sree Sreenivasan. Master classes offer a rare opportunity for public and private school teachers to work together and learn from a leading expert in their field.

Teachers selected for Academy for Teachers master classes show passion for their subjects, creativity in their classrooms, and devotion to their students. Paul was one of 18 educators chosen to attend “Social Media: What It Means & How to Use It." As a part of the class, Paul gave a short presentation on some of the lessons he has taught regarding the monetization of YouTube and modern forms of celebrity that depend on likes, view counts, and money.

As a master class participant, Paul is now a fellow of The Academy of Teachers, joining a growing cohort of New York City’s strongest educators. Congratulations, Paul!
