Two Area Teachers Study State Court System


First Coast High school teacher Mario Tizziani was one of 25

Florida teachers who spent four days in Tallahassee this month

learning about state government.

Tizziani, an American government and economics teacher, was the

only teacher selected from the Duval County school system to

participate in the Justice Teaching Institute.

Ed Snyder, a Jacksonville resident who teaches social studies

at Nease High School in St. Johns County, also was chosen.

Participants learned about processes involved in appellate

courts, circuit courts and the Supreme Court, as well as the

Florida Constitution. They also will follow monthly Supreme

Court cases posted on the Internet.

"It gave me a lot more tools to use in the classroom," Tizziani

said. "We will review the case of the month and will be provided

with the actual transcripts to use as part of our lesson."

HISTORIC DISTRICT LEADERS: Peggy Burnett has been elected to

head the 3,000-member Riverside Avondale Preservation Inc. for

the coming year.

Others chosen at the annual meeting last week are: Sarah

Sharp, vice chairwoman; Jeanne Miller, secretary; Barney Smith,

treasurer; Phillip Dillingham, legal adviser; and Susan Grandin,

Jay McGovern and Joe White, executive board members. They will

serve one-year terms.

Last month, the City Council voted to designate Riverside and

Avondale a local historic district after an emotional campaign

by supporters and opponents.

A major goal during her tenure will be to bring residential and

commercial interests together in implementing the legislation,

said Burnett, an attorney.
