Martintoch Mark Roseme-Founder
Martintoch Mark Roseme utilized his 15 years of experience teaching and helping kids and, in 2005, started an organization called “Triple Threat Inc.” D.B.A. The American Academy that Specializes in Serving Our Youth and Our Community. Today Mark is the proud founder of The American Academy, a 501C-3 non-profit organization initiated in 2005 committed to the success of at-promise youth by providing empathy, encouragement, and education through mentoring, after-school tutoring, and sports programs. At 16, Mark found himself with no adult supervision and had the sole responsibility of caring for his three younger sisters and one younger brother. This unfortunate position made life difficult, and as a result, his life was going in the wrong direction. However, a few months later, a chance meeting with a caring and dedicated coach convinced him that he could have a better future. It was the first time he had any adult instill in him the hope and confidence that he could have a great life. With his Coach’s guidance, he forged on and, later that year, completed his degree at American Heritage High School. He then completed his Bachelor’s Degree in 2017. Currently, Mark is employed as the Athletic Director at a local school in the community. He is a dedicated father of two children, a dedicated member of a church, and a part-time basketball coach, all of which provide him with a great opportunity to influence kids positively.
