Bart Martin was born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, though he would like to think he was born and raised in Middle-earth. He attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point where he majored in philosophy. During his five years as a M1A1 Abrams tank platoon leader and company executive officer, he discovered that his real love is teaching. After getting out of the Army, he taught Latin, Logic, Greek, Rhetoric, Literature, Government and Theology at several different classical Christian schools. While teaching, he earned a Master of Divinity Degree at Reformed Episcopal Seminary in Philadelphia, and was subsequently ordained in the Reformed Episcopal Church. In addition to teaching at Wilson Hill Academy, Mr. Martin is a lacrosse referee and a Chaplain in the U.S. Army Reserves. Along with teaching, his greatest loves are:  God’s kingdom; his wife of twenty years; his four children (twins age 17, and a 12 and 10 year old);  his small suburban farm; anything related to Tolkien’s Middle-earth; and anything having to do with football or lacrosse . . . but also basketball, hockey, soccer, handball, tennis, ultimate frisbee, or (insert any other sport here).
