Biography (click here for a short video introduction)

My name is Mr. Eastman, and I am very excited to have this opportunity to work with you for the 2020-2021 school year!

Just a little about myself: I graduated from Greenway High School in 2000, and studied music for a few years (guitar) in the college setting. I then joined the U.S. Army as a guitar player (yes, that was my actual job title) and served in South Carolina, Virginia Beach, Fort Huachuca (in Arizona), and in Wiesbaden, Germany. It was in Wiesbaden where I met my wife (a flute player in the band). We will be married 15 years this December, and we have two daughters.They are 12 years and 4 years old. 

 

I graduated from Arizona State University with the following degrees:

*Bachelors in Secondary Education- History (2011)

*BS in Political Science (2011)

*Master's of Education- Special Education (2012)

*Master's of Education- Educational Leadership (2018)

 

I started my career as a special education teacher at Kino Junior High here in Mesa. I then went to Westwood for 2 more years, before moving to the Tempe Union High School District (Marcos de Niza High School) for 3 years. I then returned to Westwood as a social studies teacher for the 2018-2019 school year, where I am now teaching AP Government, Government, and AVID.
