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 Monday evening Sewickley Academy traveled just down the street to take on neighborhood rival Quaker Valley. In a fast paced and well played game, Sewickley struck first with a beautiful shot from Olivia Ryder. As the game progressed, Quaker Valley began to tally up goals as Sewickley remained at 1 on the scoreboard. Despite losing 6-1 in the end, Sewickley learned a lot from playing a competitive and skilled QV team. Sewickley moves to 7-2-2 on the season and still has first place in the section in their sights.
