Travis has spent fifteen years in classrooms: as a middle school teacher and coach, gifted and talented specialist, and now as a curriculum designer and instructional coach. He began his work with invitational grammar practices and found his students thrived in a classroom filled with conversation, inquiry, and celebration. He has now coauthored two Patterns of Power books with Jeff Anderson about invitational grammar practices.
Travis enjoys traveling to school districts and conferences to share his love for empowering young readers and writers and the educators who support them on their literacy journeys.
