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.
We returned to Cedarbrook, to play in an annual invitational tournament, which is held on the course we will ultimately play for our WPIAL playoffs.I love this tournament for our girls - we get a good look at the course, gain tournament experience, and have a friendly competition as it has no bearing on our regular season (though we want to win it!). Well, we won it for the first time ever! Back tracking a bit, we had to move up our tee time to 7:30 am (eclipse) requiring a 5:30am meeting time (never good for teenagers!). We also learned that we would be playing the gold course (the boys’ course) and not the red course, which will be our WPIAL course. So much for the “good look”. In the end,it all worked out. We shot our lowest score ever at Cedarbrook, and proudly received the trophy which is available for viewing in the Events Center. Four of our girls received additional medals for being in the top 8 pf all the players, with Tatum earning medalist. Stay tuned!
Tatum - 78 Zoe - 87 Brianna - 91 Lexie - 93 Haley - 117 * Her first 18 holes ever finishing the round with her first birdie! We are really proud of her and her performance!
