Carrie Foshee, a second-grade teacher at Orchards Elementary, spent her third consecutive summer teaching children in the Peruvian Andes through the nonprofit organization Kids at the Crossroads-Peru. This boy, Jhonatan, attended the program for a few years, but this summer his father didn't allow him to return because the boy was needed to work at home. "I was able to see Jhonatan a few times this summer," Foshee said. "He told me his homework was too hard and now there was no one to help him. … It makes me cry."
