Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Peter Scuzzo
My name is Pete Scavuzzo and I am married to the most wonderful woman, Victoria Scavuzzo. Collectively, we have six children ranging from 12 years old to 33 years old. Being a father is the most rewarding experience of my life. I am so proud of my children that words cannot describe what they do for me. When I am not interacting with my family or working, I enjoy playing the guitar, which is my most enjoyable hobby.
I graduated from Missouri State University with a bachelor’s degree in Organizational communications and a bachelor’s degree in Marketing. I used my degrees to further myself on a lucrative 21-year background in Sales and Sales Management. Then one day in 2008, I received my calling to teach students at the elementary level, so back to school I went to acquire a certificate in elementary education from the University of Missouri in St. Louis. After graduation, I received a call from Dr. Evelyn Woods to come and teach at Grannemann Elementary. This is my seventh year at Grannemann and I can honestly say that my career so far in education has been more satisfying than my twenty- one years in sales and sales management.
Upon retirement, when it is time to enjoy the latter years of life, I would like to look back at both of my careers but with different goals and results. With sales in mind, I would like to be reminded by my peers and friends that I was a very professional and goal-driven sales person that seldom took no for an answer, which resulted in a comfortable financial situation.
More important to me is my career in education, which has so far given me a lot of joy and satisfaction. Watching students grow brings me many rewards intrinsically. I would love nothing more than to see students I have taught come to me and say, “Mr. S. You were my teacher at Granneman and you taught me to love Science, Math, or any of the other classes I have taught.
