Robert Moy, who teaches gifted kids at P.S. 334, will be receiving a 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary! (Courtesy of, of course, the Oxford English Dictionary). The graphic below is in celebration of the OED's 80th birthday -- or, as we like to say at the bee, octentennial.*

Moy also took home $150 cash from Pete's, as well as a trophy, free drinks, and some cupcakes. 2nd place Jonathan Lill and 3rd place Carolyn D'Aquila also took home beaucoup prizes, including Concise Oxford English Dictionaries, subscriptions to the Visual Thesaurus, and more.

Way to go, Mr. Moy! You're an amazing teacher and a great speller.

After all these years, you're still one of Amanda Sonnenschein's greatest and most inspirational teachers. She will be matriculating at Wesleyan University in the fall, and you played a major part.

Congratulations. We will never forget you.
