Andrew Bacskai

Hello, I’m Andrew Bacskai (it’s a somewhat baffling Hungarian surname pronounced “Bass-sky”). I couldn’t be happier to be teaching sixth-grade Writer's and Reader's Workshop here at Highland Park Middle School. It’s a dream job for me. My wife and I live in here in Highland with our exceedingly kind and low-maintenance rescued greyhoud. Our two children both attended Highland Middle and Senior High before moving on to college and life beyond. I love that I have the privilege of being able to help make a positive contribution to the community in which I live.

As for my background, I grew up in southeastern Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a B.A. in journalism. I worked as a writer and editor for various newspapers, magazines and marketing agencies for roughly 15 years before I decided to pursue my Master's in teaching. 

As a teacher, my goal is not only to help young people become competent readers and writers, but competent, compassionate people. Stop by room 2401 for a visit any time, or don’t hesitate to use the contact information listed on this page.
