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.
In a matchup between last year's AAA and AA WPIAL Champions, the Panthers played outstanding defense to defeat their old section rival 70 - 42. For the second straight game all five starters registered double figures as Isaiah Smith led us with 19 points, Jett Roessing with 18 points, along with Dave Groetsch, Isiah Warfield and Nate Ridgeway. Four players led the team with 7 rebounds in Nate, Isiah, Dave and Isaiah. All five starters had between two and four steals. Isaiah and Isiah led the team in assists. Isiah and Nate led the team in blocked shots. Will, Jared and Donald continue to help us off the bench.
Another outstanding team effort from our hard working players!
