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.
Saturday was the setting for the first round of the playoffs. The Panthers took to the field against Riverview at Montour High School. The first half saw both teams battle to get a rhythm for the game, however, neither team could find the back of the net. The second half was just as equally contested, however, Riverview struck first. With about 12 minutes left in the contest, the Panthers received a penalty shot and Alex Gordon scored the tying goal. For the next 10 minutes both teams had chances to score, but neither could muster the go ahead goal. But with about 2 minutes left in the game, Riverview scored the deciding goal to win 2-1 and end the Panthers season.
