Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a student one day, and a teacher the next at the same school you graduated from? Teacher and Barnesville graduate Matt Askegaard is living that life right now. Askegaard graduated from Barnesville in 1998. Askegaard compared high school now to back then: “There have been a lot of technology changes; we didn’t have email at all or cell phones.” Some of Askegaard’s favorite classes when he was in high school consisted of, “ Advanced Biology, lunch, I liked being a gym aide for Mr. Anderson also.” If you were to ask Askegaard if he misses high school, he would tell you, “ How could I miss it? I’m here everyday, yee yee.” Askegaard wanted to be a teacher because he “liked coaching and coaching is teaching, so I wanted to be a teacher, and Barnesville is where the job was at, so I took it.” Askegaard has been in Barnesville his whole life. He was one of the most liked students, and now one of the most liked teachers.
