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.
Once again our guys came ready to play jumping out to a 17 - 0 first quarter lead. We had 20 assists on our 29 baskets with 5 of those 9 unassisted baskets coming on fast break layups and 3 of them coming on offensive rebounds. Excellent ball movement! Nate and Isaiah led us with 10 rebounds each and Will and Dave each had 7 rebounds. We had four guys in double figures in scoring with Jett, Nate, Isaiah and Isiah whose 17 points led us. Outstanding team defense all night against Canevin's spread offense! Congratulations to Isiah on his first dunk in game action!
