“Your message was powerful, thought provoking, and inspiring. The positive comments from over 500 administrators, school board members, teachers, and support staff have been flowing throughout our district and the community since your visit. I know our students are truly going to benefit because of the way you were able to touch all of us who heard your presentation.

Education Leader: Dr. Ric Dressen, Superintendent, School District 206 - Alexandria, Minnesota
“Professor Joe is truly a teacher’s teacher. He not only inspired me and equipped me to ‘stay the course’ in making a difference in the lives of our students, he’s shown me how and why I should be reaching out to support, train, and mentor other teachers who may have lost their way in this wonderful profession.”
Education Leader: Derrick Farmer, Two-time Teacher of the Year, Leon & Jefferson County School Districts (FL)
"Wow! is all I can say. I heard so much about Professor Martin prior to attending one of his programs, and I can’t begin to describe the powerful impact he made on our students, teachers, and administrators. I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it for myself. Not only did he live up to the expectations that preceded him, he surpassed them. What a wonderful, living role model he is, not only for our teachers, but particularly for our students."
Education Leader: Essie Pace, Assistant Superintendent, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (FL)
“I can't thank you enough for speaking at the National Education Association "Challenge for Change" National Conference in Colorado Springs. According to the feedback and evaluations we received from the attendees, you were easily the highlight of the entire event. Your message on servant leadership was exactly what we needed to recharge their batteries. Literally dozens of school district representatives have asked me how they could get you to come to their school district to address their staff. Thanks again for making me look so smart for bringing you in to speak.”
Education Leader: Claudia Edwards, National Education Association - Washington, D.C.
“Professor Martin was the highlight of our district-wide annual awards celebration ceremony. Even months after the event, our district is still talking about the power of his unique message – from the principals to the custodial workers. We’ve never invited a speaker to address such a large group before. And now they’ve already asked me about having Professor Martin to come back again next year.”
Education Leader: Bill Montford, School Superintendent, Leon County (FL), and former “Florida Superintendent of the Year”
"Professor Joe Martin ignites the audience with his passion for the profession of teaching. He shares from personal experience how teachers can change the lives of their students. Joe believes teachers should not let money or other outside influences stop them from following their calling, so he shares his innovative ideas on how teachers can supplement their incomes. Joe helped me look inside myself and to remember why I am in this profession - to serve students! He also reminded me that I can succeed financially, as well as professionally, when I put my heart and head together."
Education Leader: Beth Hammock, Communications Director, Independence School District - Independence, Missouri
"Professor Martin was overwhelmingly the highlight (and talk) at our national conference entitled 'Challenge for Change.' His dynamic message and heart-wrenching stories on serving students is one that everyone in education, regardless of their position, SHOULD hear. Not only will his message touch your heart, it will inspire you to take action. I would highly recommend that school districts take advantage of his talents as a speaker and trainer. Not only is he a passionate speaker, he can relate to teachers on an emotional and personal level that comes from being a committed teacher himself.”
Education Leader: Katrina Thirbenny, Organizational Specialist, National Education Association - Washington, D.C.
"ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!! Was the overwhelming response to Professor Joe Martin's 'Give & Grow Rich' presentation. I am certain we will have requests for Joe's services from other associations and school districts. We have already referred people to his web site who said, 'they want more of him."
Education Leader: Nancy Pereira, State Conference Coordinator, Utah Education Association
“Professor Martin's words were exactly what I needed to hear during this time in my life. I have started looking at my position and life in a different way since his presentation. It's not all words either…I have set up a plan for my staff and my student workers in my department. Professor Martin really touched my heart, and I really appreciate what he did for me that day.”
Education Leader: Glenna Bower, Director of Recreation and Fitness - University of Southern Indiana
“I can't thank you enough for the wonderful words, insights, and strategies you shared with our new teachers at the "Transition To Teaching" program last week. I know that you truly touched the hearts of everyone present - based on the comments I've already received from them. You made a very positive impact on our new teachers, and made their "transition into teaching" that much more meaningful and memorable. In the long run, you will also have a very positive impact on the students of Pasco County. I want you to come back next year and do it all over again.”
Education Leader: Terri Brown, Staff Development, Pasco County School Board - Land O' Lakes, Florida
