District 4: Joseph Marshall

Head shot
Joseph Marshall II was born in Lawrenceburg, KY, to his parents, Lawrenceburg City Council member Joe Marshall Sr. and Vanessa Marshall. Always known as a lively and spirited child, he often found himself in trouble for talking too much and too often. He would attend public school throughout his entire elementary, middle, and high school education. Never known as a top academic student, “Joe” as his classmates would eventually call him, was always known as a leader—from being a kickball coach in his fifth-grade classroom to being named senior class president for the Anderson County High School class of 2003.

After graduating from high school, Joe would move to Louisville in 2003 to attend the University of Louisville (UofL). During his time at UofL, he met his wife, LeTicia, while completing his bachelor of arts degree in English at UofL. His time there would also include many leadership positions, including resident assistant, conference director, President’s Office Cardinal host, and orientation staffer.

Upon graduating from UofL in 2007, Joe would go on to become a substitute teacher with JCPS, a group leader for the YMCA Teen Scene Summer Camp (a camp for teens with disabilities), and a site director for the YMCA Child Enrichment Program. It was during these years that he found his calling for working with young people.

Joe would go on to complete the JCPS ACES Program before teaching at Wheatley Elementary for four years. After resigning from JCPS, Joe continued his career, teaching at the West End Boys School in Louisville.

Joe is still furthering his learning as a classroom teacher at the West End Boys School while also being the father to a lively 3-year-old, Corrina. It’s through his experience as a dad that Joe has learned the importance of nurturing the character and individuality of our children.
