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 afternoon at Nichols Field, Sewickley Academy tied Quigley Catholic in an emotional battle. A scoreless and uneventful first half led to a physical and highly contested second half. Lekha Amin beautifully headed in the first goal of the game off a driven corner kick. There was a sense that this single goal would be enough to win, but then with the clock ticking down inside three minutes, Quigley scored to tie the game 1-1. Sewickley dominated both overtime periods, but was unable to put it away. Sewickley moves to 5-1-2 with the tie.
