He is a former curriculum specialist for secondary English language arts and high school English teacher at Fort Worth Independent School District, also in Texas. In 2017, he served on a committee for the State Board of Education to write the new English language arts standards for Texas.

An educator since 2008, Eastman has a background as a teacher, curriculum supervisor, and professional development leader. His educational experiences range from working in a predominantly low socioeconomic minority-majority high school to one of the most progressive and influential school districts in Texas.

He has been published in NCTE’s English Journal and has presented at educational conferences across the United States on topics ranging from developing a culture of authentic literacy in secondary schools to implementing effective summer literacy programs. Eastman has also worked with schools and leaders to significantly invest in building teacher expertise through intensive professional learning institutes.

Eastman received a bachelor’s degree in English from the College of the Ozarks in Missouri and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in literacy studies from the University of Texas at Arlington.
