Jennifer Martin

Jennifer Martin is an Assistant Professor of Developmental English. In addition to her developmental course load, she also regularly teaches first-year composition and speech communication courses, business writing, and American literature. Her scholarly interests revolve around helping underprepared students thrive in academia. She serves on the advisory board for the New Jersey Council for Community Colleges Center for Student Success, is a past-president of the New Jersey Association for Developmental Education (NJADE), and was the board president of LiteracyNJ, Burlington County Chapter. Jennifer has delivered presentations on topics related to developmental education at the National Association of Developmental Education (NADE) annual conference and at several New Jersey Association for Lifelong Learning (NJALL)/NJADE annual conferences. Currently, Jennifer is a founder and co-editor of Salem Community College’s online literary and arts magazine, From the Oak Desk. On top of all of her professional activities, Jennifer has a busy family life as the mother of three children (and three dogs). She also finds time to enjoy reading and writing for pleasure—usually very early in the morning with a strong pot of coffee.
