Kenn Jacobine is an international educator currently teaching History, English, and Information Technology in a Global Society for the American International School of Lusaka, Zambia.  He has also taught at international schools in Ecuador and Mali.

His political transformation took place over the course of many years.  Starting out naively as a big state liberal,  he became a Reagan Republican in 1982.  Disillusionment set in with the realization that small government rhetoric rarely translated into limited government actions.
On Christmas day 1992, he became a libertarian.  In 1994, Kenn ran for the State Senate in Pennsylvania on the Libertarian Party ticket garnering 5 percent of the vote.  He has been active in freedom causes ever since.


Kenn is married to a wonderful wife, Lisa.  They have two sons - Chris (a freshman at Penn State University) and Alex (an eighth grader and one of Kenn's students).
