Why would a 78-year-old grandfather take the time to put together a Prime Minister's Award nomination package for his grandson's teacher? Because he is a former educator himself who appreciates the incredible efforts Peter Guzzo of James Whiteside Elementary School in Richmond makes for students. The school runs a French immersion program and Mr. Guzzo specializes in encouraging students to develop the self-respect and creativity necessary to succeed in this special environment. His approach is based on involvement — everyone from students to parents has a place — and hard work. Those who take up the challenge find themselves completing integrated curriculum involving everything from reading exercises and music to mathematics and computer training.
