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 rallied around its seniors for a convincing 6-1 win on Senior Day against Ellis. All six of the goals were scored by seniors. Olivia Ryder had a hat trick, Marynell Dethero added two more including one penalty kick, and defender-temporarily-turned-forward Lu Gillespie finished a beautiful breakaway. Even on a slippery field, Sewickley maintained possession and calmly connected passes in their offensive half. With the win, Sewickley moved to 10-3-2 on the season and is seeking one more important section win next week.
