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 Academy Girls’ Soccer moved to 3-1 with their first loss on Monday afternoon to South Side Beaver. In a physical matchup with lots of scoring opportunities, South Side Beaver came out on top winning 4-2. Sewickley hit fast and hard, scoring first off a an Olivia Rider breakaway assisted by Catherine Cable. In the second half, Sewickley added momentum to their attack with another goal from Ryder assisted by Marynell Dethero. Despite the loss, the girls walked away from the game with new data to inform their future play and are eager to compete with South Side Beaver again later this season. Sewickley Academy also felt the loss of multiple players sidelined due to injuries and looks forward to their speedy recovery.
