Mathew Easterwood

MLL Teacher and Senior Team Lead



My name is Mr. Matt, and I am excited to be a Steck Star! My pronouns are he/him/his, and I have been in education for over 13 years. I have taught across a broad spectrum – from abroad in Romania through the Peace Corps to at a trauma treatment center, but I have spent much of my career in early education, which was the focus of my Master’s Degree. I am currently working on my Educational Specialist Degree in Leadership for Educational Organizations. My areas of focus have been on social-emotional learning, trauma awareness, human rights and work with multi-lingual students.

Personally, Marisa (my wife) and I have been in Denver for nine years. Evans (cat) and Delaney (dog) are our fur-children. We love watching TV and movies, learning about and discussing mental health, traveling and trying new foods. I am a big fan of coffee, hiking, creative writing and most things fantasy and sci-fi.
