Tim Eastman grew up in Lapeer, Michigan, which is about 60 miles North of Detroit. He graduated from Central Michigan University in December 2006. From 2007-2010, he was employed by professional baseball as an umpire. In May 2010, he was umpiring in Akron, Ohio, and the field was located near Akron Children’s Hospital. Here he witnessed children being airlifted to and from the helicopter base located at the hospital; and here, Tim realized that his purpose in life was not umpiring baseball. Tim felt that he could have a larger impact on people if he pursued a career in education, which brought him back to his undergraduate training. During the 2010 season, he made the decision to retire from baseball and begin a teaching career. Now, Tim works in an area that he thoroughly enjoys and is passionate about. Tim takes pride in knowing that he makes a difference in the lives of many children. Before teaching at First Baptist Christian School in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, where he is presently employed and known as “Coach Tim”, he taught at Hope of Detroit Academy located in Detroit, Michigan.
Tim enjoys working with students. He loves being a charismatic and positive role model, and he is passionate about teaching the students the importance of proper nutrition, exercise, and the fact that physical fitness is fun!
In addition to his calling as an educator, Tim is currently working on continuing his own education through earning his masters degree at Western Michigan University. His Master’s degree will be in Physical Education with an emphasis in Pedagogy.
Tim enjoys spending time with his wife, Dr. Nicole Eastman, and their son, Jack, attending church, working out, spending time with family, and watching/playing sports.
