MY TEACHING STYLE

21st Century teaching and learning ensures that students are ready for the global marketplace. Gone are the days of teachers being the sage on the stage. Teachers must prepare through purposeful planning, facilitating the learning, assess constantly, create student-centered lessons, and support students when they don't get it. This is my style and I also provide a safe learning environment, so that all students can learn.

In order to reach students who were affected by socio-economic challenges, he co-developed the “S.T.A.R.S.” program. Success Through Academic Rigor and Support (S.T.A.R.S.) is a program that is committed to the success of the “at risk” 9th grade population by providing support and resources that will assist in limiting the number of academic failure, reducing absenteeism, decreasing discipline referrals, and closing the achievement gap. The S.T.A.R.S. program has experienced success over the past two years by increasing the promotion rate of 9th grade students. Travis’ work has been featured in the January 2013 Issue of Atlanta Magazine, as well as on GCPS TV.
