NYS PTA Teacher Fellowship for Graduate Study in memory of Richard Gazzolla Award

New York State PTA Teacher Fellowship for Graduate Study in Memory of Richard Gazzola Award (the Teacher Fellowship)

The Teacher Fellowship was established in 1961 to “encourage excellent teachers to stay in the classroom by providing an opportunity for them to improve their teaching skills, update their professional knowledge, and expand their professional perspectives.” Recipients receive up to $3,000 to help pay for education courses to further their studies.

Area recipients are honored at the Nassau Region PTA Presidents and Principals Dinner. This event is attended annually by the PTA President, PTA Directors, school principals, the Superintendent of Schools, Board of Education President, and the President of the Garden City Teachers’ Association.
