Lee Avenue Teacher Selected for Competitive Training Program

Lee Avenue fourth-grade teacher Phillip Moshoyannis has been selected to 
participate in Teachers for Global Classrooms, a branch of the federally 
funded Fulbright Program designed to provide yearlong training in 
international instruction. 

As part of the program, he will spend three weeks in Peru observing 
classrooms and touring the country and its wide range of geographic 
features. Moshoyannis, who has taught at Lee Avenue for 23 years, is among 
76 teachers selected nationwide from a pool of 477 candidates. He is also 
one of just four teachers selected in New York State, and the only one on 
Long Island. 

Expenses for the program will be paid in full by the U.S. Department of 
State.
