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 defeated Carlynton on a beautiful evening under the lights in Carnegie. Elsa Gordon and Olivia Ryder finished the two goals in the first half that earned the team a 2-1 victory. Cameron Ivy returned to play and brought poise to a chaotic game full of long balls and chasing. With victory in sight late in the second half, Carlynton scored off a corner kick forcing a nail-biting finish. However, Sewickley remained calm and finished strong. With the win, Sewickley moves to 4-1 overall and 2-1 in the section.
