Martin is a Dunstable resident and a 1997 graduate of Greater Lowell Technical High School. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance at Bentley College before going on to work in the electrical field.

He then decided he wanted to teach electrical theory to high-school students.

“I’ve always had a strong interest in the theory part of the industry,” Martin said. “I enjoy that ‘a-ha moment’ when a student learns something they’ve been working on. I love seeing it dawn on their faces.”

Martin said he is proud of being selected as Nashoba Tech’s nominee for Best New Teacher.
