Hi there, my name is Doug Anton and I am a high school social studies teacher, parent, financial coach, and world traveler. I've had an interest in the world and how it works since my childhood, and it was no surprise to anyone that knew me that I became a social studies teacher. Over the past ten years of my adult life, I've spent my time exploring the world myself, having traveled to 33 different countries, as well as bringing the world to my students inside my classroom. I've been lucky to teach my high school students courses about American History, Global Issues, Criminal Justice, Philosophy, and more. I enjoy diving deep into meaningful subjects that are relevant to my students' lives.
Ever since my dad helped me buy my first stock in 5th grade, I've had a special passion for economics and personal finance. Since then, I've dedicated countless hours learning about retirement savings, health insurance, budgeting, credit card debt, and many more topics. My favorite course to teach at my school is called "Economics and You" where I bring real-world financial lessons to my teenage students.
I'm hoping to share my passion and expertise in personal finance with the global community through the Udemy platform, and I look forward to learning together with you!
