NEA Global Fellow Reflects on Peru Experience
Iroquois Physical Education teacher Anne Beranek spent her summer vacation on a cultural exchange in Peru as a National Education Association Foundation Global Fellow. Now already back in the classroom in District 62’s only year-round school, Mrs. Beranek is planning new ways to raise awareness among her students of the world around them.

While in Peru, she visited schools, met with local educators and participated in a community service project. Mrs. Beranek prepared for the visit over the previous six months by learning conversational Spanish and developing global citizenship lesson plans for her Iroquois students. “The studies focused on what it means to teach children about world outside your community, because we’re all more connected than we are different. We do have common interests and values,” she said. In the rural areas of Peru that she visited, she said the average rural family with six children lives on an average of $25 per month. Rural schools have very little resources, and she worked with an organization trying to empower rural communities called Peru’s Challenge.
