Matt Askegaard has been teaching the class Surviving the Real World for two years. Askegaard said, “The class shows basic personal finance skills that are needed in society, from banking basics, investing, to career exploration.” He has been showing students the importance of financial education for their future. It shows how to save money and use it wisely. Askegaard thinks this class should be required and said, “I don’t think students get education and understanding of basic money skills.” Surviving the Real World would be a great required class that every student should take before they graduate. One of the best parts about the class is that Askegaard is a very enthusiastic teacher who has a main goal of helping every student to his or her full potential. His favorite part about teaching the class is “that I can use my own personal experiences that are good and not good to help them further understand and show a basic understanding.” Mr. Askegaard helps the students understand the information by having discussions. This class helps students get a better understanding of their future, and gets them ready for their mission in life.
