New Greek Language Pedagogical Program Initiated by Greek Archdiocese

By Catherine Tsounis

A spring workshop series for Teachers of the Greek Language is being held at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Flushing, New York. Mrs. Maria Makedon, Director of the Direct Archdiocesan District Office of Education with Dr. Thalia Hadzigiannoglou, Education Consular of the Greek Consulate General in New York have organized this series.

“This Pedagogical Program was the child of our proposal at our 40th Honorary Luncheon of PROMETHEUS,” explained Greek Teachers Association “Prometheus” President Demosthenes Triantafillou. “The Program of Mrs. Makedon has been inspired by the PROMETHEUS proposals and the Program at the Ascension School in Fairview.  PROMETHEUS has opened new educational horizons for Pedagogical Programs, to meet the professional needs of the Greek Teachers. PROMETHEUS will continue with its vision to solve problems and to benefit the Members of PROMETHEUS.”
