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.
Sewickley Academy lost a tough away game to section rival OLSH on Monday night. After a day off school, Sewickley started flat. OLSH capitalized and put Sewickley on their heels after scoring two goals in the first half. Sewickley found an answer in the second half and scored two goals to tie the game. Olivia Ryder beautifully finished the first goal and Marynell Dethero added the second off a penalty kick soon after. Late in the second half OLSH regained the lead via penalty kick and the final score read 3-2 in favor of OLSH. Sewickley moves to 9-3-2 on the season.
