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 tied OLSH on Monday afternoon in a scoreless game through double overtime. The teams battled for much needed possession in a game where the ball traveled frequently from one back line to the other. In the opening minutes OLSH proved to be a fierce opponent by winning 50/50 balls and earning a few good scoring opportunities. However, after this sluggish first half and a much needed halftime pep talk, Sewickley retook the field with determination and grit in the second half. The tides had turned, but the ball still did not find the back of the net. Sewickley moves to 4-1-1 overall with the tie.
