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.
After a long week with section qualifiers and tough course conditions Thursday at Sewickley Heights, no one would have imagined the unthinkable - Will Nocito birdied his first four holes on his way to both a school and course record for high school golfers with a six under par 29!!! This propelled the team to a school and course record with a total of 179, just four over par at Allegheny CC. Amazingly, as often happens during the regular season, today was the day JF Aber played as an alternate - he shot a one under par 34 which would have given us an even par 175. Amazing day!
