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.
Our energy focused on the "team" continues to grow and develop making this a fun to watch as we progress. Tonight we jumped on Laurel with superb, disciplined defense which led to easy scores. We led 24 - 4 at the end of the first quarter, limiting the effectiveness of the large, boisterous Laurel home crowd. We scored 82 points by the end of the third quarter. Isiah established a new season high in rebounds with 16 to go with his 16 points. Jett and Isaiah led us in scoring with 21 points a piece and Dave scored 16 points. Nate registered 10 rebounds. Isiah led us with 6 assists and Isaiah had 5 assists.
Congratulations to George and JF for scoring their first varsity points as they were called up this month!
