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.
Despite playing only 2 and a half quarters, each of our starters scored between 14 and 17 points as the first 8 players had only 2 turnovers among the group. My compliments to our guys for playing with energy and continuing to share the ball so well. We are the only team in the area with five players averaging double figures which is an amazing statistic and great testimony to the skills, the basketball IQ and the outstanding team players we have once again this year! Our three guys who help us off the bench have figured out how to best help this team in so many ways that don't show up in the newspapers' stats!
