Senior School History Teacher Travels to South Korea for Professional Development
This past July, I traveled to South Korea with a group of American educators with the generous support of the Korean War Legacy Foundation and Sewickley Academy. This professional development connected me to my curriculum and past enrichment, which continually puts me in the learning seat, prepares me to contextualize historical events for students, and sets me up to share global perspectives.
Although we won the match by a large margin, the score doesn’t tell the whole story. Your girls stayed focused and played to the best of their ability in spite of the slow pace of play, and lack of experience on their opponents part. What I was most impressed with however, was how kind and helpful the girls were to their opponents who were struggling and getting very frustrated. The other wonderful thing that happened was that we gained a new player, Haley, to round out our team (thanks to Tatum!). We welcome Haley and look forward to her progress through the year!
Tatum - 38 Medalist Zoe - 43 Brianna - 46 Lexie - 50 Haley - played exhibition - played her first 6 holes and played remarkably well, beating all the other players in her group.
