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.
On a hot and sunny day in Sewickley, the Panthers played host to a section game against OLSH. Sewickley gave up some early opportunities to OLSH and unfortunately paid the price as OLSH scored the first goal of the game, however, Sewickley came back to take the lead 2-1 late in the first half. Scoring the goals were Thomas Yung and Rees Blaylock. The lead was only secured for a short period of time as OLSH found the back of the net on a penalty shot late in the half, tying the score 2-2. But Sewickley didn't give up and scored on a penalty as well to take the lead 3-2. Scoring the goal was Alex Gordon. Both teams had more chances to score, but neither team could tally another goal. Good win gentleman.
