John Asmussen, Mr.A, Coach Asmussen or Coach A, whatever you decide to call him, he will answer. After teaching at Clayton for seven years, he left to reach broader horizons. He taught at Lassiter High School in Atlanta, North Johnston, West Johnston and Corinth Holders high schools. He’s always taught high school history and/or social studies. Here, at Clayton, he teaches two standard civics classes to sophomores and one honors American history class. Next semester he will teach two standard American history II classes and one honors civics class.

In his fifteenth year of teaching, Asmussen feels blessed to generate a positive impact on his students and watch them grow in knowledge. He decided to come back and teach at Clayton High School because this is where he started and where his family is located.

“I love the school, students and faculty; I feel very at home here,” Coach A said.

He spends his free time with his wife and young daughter. He coaches Clayton’s soccer team in addition to eighth graders in the JUSA organization. His favorite subjects in high school were, of course, history and gym.

He said, “I would coach professional soccer full time.”
