He goes above and beyond in every endeavor. Travis teaches English Resource and co-teaches English Literature. Travis came into his current position when the focus was far below acceptable. Travis goes out of his way to help students achieve success and communicates progress with their other teachers as well as the students' parents. Travis is also the Blackhawks head wrestling coach. Williams Field High School is a newer East Valley high school and has had a different head coach each year, so stability was missing from that team. Travis has raised the bar for the athletic character. During the summer prior to the start of his season, Travis offered open mat for all athletes interested in the coming wrestling season, which was unpaid time. Travis had his athletes participate in community service various times at the high school including: weed pulling around campus, trash pick up around the football field, locker room cleanup, and again all of it was unpaid time. Travis wants to instill campus pride in his students and athletes. Travis's philosophy is and will always be "Lead By Example." Travis makes sure that his students and athletes know that he holds them to a higher standard, that they set the example that others strive to be...EXCELLENCE! Travis is a quiet, humble man and will never ask for recognition for his above and beyond character. He just wants his students to want to be successful in their lives!
