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.
Last years WPIAL championship match between Sewickley Academy and North Catholic was renewed this year as an early season matchup at Peters High School. Both teams played well early on, however, North Catholic broke through in the match and scored the first goal of the game. The first half ended as both teams had chances but couldn't tally any more goals. The second half saw North Catholic scoring an early second half goal to go up by the score of 2-0. Sewickley Academy couldn't muster any offense and the game ended 2-0 for a North Catholic victory.
