Close encounters — Elementary education and Spanish senior Addy Sadowski participated in the College of Education’s first student and faculty excursion to Peru. She observed teachers and students in two schools in Lima. She learned about ties between education and politics. She found that wonderful cuisine and breathtaking views renew spirits and small encounters matter. “The little things, whether funny moments or touching moments, even the briefest moments, aren’t ‘little things,’ they’re often the most memorable,” she says.
