This is the part where you learn a little bit about me! First, my name is Lukas C. Keagy. And just so that we can hopefully put to rest the common mispronunciation of my last name, it is pronounced “Kay-Ghee”.
So a little bit about me:
I am a husband to my wife, Anna, and the proud father of Cameron (now a two-year-old tornado of cuteness) and Patrick (born January 29, 2017).
I am a history, government and economics teacher and serve as the History Department Chair at a small, private, Christian school where I have taught for the last five years since graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Education: Social Studies. I have also completed four out of a series of five fictional novels, a series that I hope to one day pursue for publication, in addition to having written numerous short stories.
Born in the United States, but having grown up in Peru, with a few years during my childhood spent in the U.S., has given me a unique international perspective–a perspective that has developed and broadened with having lived in the United States for the previous eight years, where I have poured myself into understanding the history, economics, politics and financial/investment landscape of the U.S. and nations around the world.
Teaching and writing are my passions, and as I describe in my introduction (which is also my first post), I use this blog as an important tool in my own learning and teaching. If you have not read it already, go read “Why On Earth Do We Need Another Blog?” now!
And yes, I know this is everywhere, but if you are interested in receiving my newsletter and content updates, please subscribe!
