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.
