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.
It took Sewickley Academy 87 minutes to defeat Eden Christian 2-1 on Monday. Marynell Dethero scored an unassisted goal off a corner kick in the 8th minute of the game, giving Sewickley an early lead. Despite dominating much of the second half, regulation ended with a 1-1 tie on the scoreboard. In the first overtime period, Dethero scored the winning goal, this time off an excellent through ball from Lekha Amin. Theresa Wilson registered 8 saves. With the win, Sewickley finishes the first half of the season 6-1-2 and looks forward to an even more commanding second half.
