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 had another amazing victory posting our all time lowest number in our team history. All five girls played exceptionally well, on a hilly, short, tight course against a team who typically scores well on their own turf. One of the opponents shot a hole in one, but was unable to convert it into a winning score against our experienced Senior, Brianna. We are definitely on a roll, but are taking one match at a time with a long term goal which I will not put in print. I am very proud of our small, but mighty team, and am enjoying watching their continued improvement!
Tatum - 36 -medalist Zoe - 38 Brianna - 42 Lexie - 46 Haley - 57 ( a very solid showing in her first match! If her score had counted, we still would have won!)
