As in any professional field, to provide the best service to clientele, employees must be trained in the latest technology and best practices. We believe that strongly at Eastman.


Our teachers are trained by professional agencies that specialize in Reading, Mathematics and Writing. Teachers are given opportunities to learn the most effective strategies for students to achieve and excel. Teachers attend conferences yearly during their own summer vacation time which reflects their investment in students’ achievement.


We have 8 National Board Teachers on staff. Over 15 of staff have Masters degrees. There is a rigorous process to hire new teachers when vacancies do occur.


Principal, Teresa Armas, is specialized in Instruction and served as a Mentor teacher for over 10 years training new teachers through the state. Presently she is part of a Principal Cohort with LA County of Education that receives training in educational reforms. She is a published author.
