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.
In the 2017 season opener, Sewickley Girls’ Soccer defeated Vincentian Academy 5-1. It took Sewickley a little time to get into a rhythm, but once they did, the goals started flowing. Olivia Ryder had a hat trick with Sarina Sandhu and Elsa Gordon each adding one goal. Lekha Amin assisted each of the last four goals. The defense held strong with impressive freshman debuts from Cameron Lightcap and Emily Szabo to support veteran defenders Lu Gillespie and Catherine Cable and goalkeeper Theresa Wilson. After a long pre-season and a lot of hard work, Sewickley is off to an excellent start. We look forward to our upcoming section games with optimism and excitement.
