Title: Teacher, Investor, Official

Location: Hackettstown, New Jersey, United States
Joseph Martin, Teacher, Investor and Official at JM Investments, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in teaching and sports.
Mr. Martin attributes his success to the fact that he never has enough to do. He never has a ceiling as to the number of things that need to be done. He is good at pushing things to the limit, which he does every day. He had 16-hour days in college and hasn’t stopped since. But when the work is enjoyed as much as Mr. Martin enjoys his line of work, it is easy to put in that many hours and not feel the contempt for the work like so many others. Since 2014, he has served as an adjunct professor in health and physical education at Essex County College. He was previously a special education teacher with the Linden Board of Education and the athletic director and physical education teacher at Lacordaire Academy.
Mr. Martin was inspired to work in the academic field growing up and watching his mother teach as an educator. He first completed his undergrad in business and worked in the corporate world for a while but found the work insatiable. He always liked teaching, coaching and athletic directing. He found that teaching was the entry point to all of that and was able to put everything together and make a nice career out of it. He first earned a Bachelor of Science in business management from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1989 and received an EdM in sports management and leisure studies from Temple University in 1995. Mr. Martin is certified in special education and has also enjoyed being an umpire for sporting events.
Looking toward the future, Mr. Martin would like to be more of a Division I official and officiate Division I games. He plans to continue teaching and focus on physical education and coaching with special education students. Overall, he wants to keep bettering himself and not be complacent; he wants to be the best he can be at all times, and add to his resume. Furthermore, Mr. Martin is a licensed real estate agent and investor.
