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.
Sewickley Girls’ Soccer traveled to Winchester Thurston for their section opener on Wednesday. After a quick Winchester goal, Sewickley rallied back with poise and force. Lehka Amin scored two back-to-back goals both assisted by Olivia Ryder. To close out the first half, Lexi Guerin added another goal off an excellent corner kick from Ryder. Sewickley was under pressure in the second half and had some trouble getting their offense rolling again. In the end, the strong showing in the first half was enough and Sewickley walked away with the 3-2 victory. Congratulations on the 2-0 start girls!
