Hello and welcome. Thank you for visiting my blog, which focuses on the essential element for school improvement… TRUST.
Decades of research demonstrates that the single greatest indicator of successful schools is trusted leaders and teachers; no matter if success is defined by student achievement levels, workplace satisfaction of faculty and staff, or financial stability.
When schools focus on developing high levels of trust, they witness amazing results!
With the endeavor to pursue continually higher levels of trust in every area of the school, I have the honor of leading Desert Christian Schools (DCS) in Tucson, Arizona, as Headmaster (i.e. Superintendent). At DCS we are committed to pursuing excellence in Christian Education, fostering Christ-centered relationships, and endeavoring to meet the unique learning needs of every student. I also serve as a consultant with the Global School Consulting Group, through which I have the opportunity of supporting, mentoring, and training other school leaders around the world – especially in the use and implementation of the TrustED™ School Leader Assessments and the TrustED™ Training Modules.
In addition, I serve Ripe For Harvest World Outreach (RFH), a global non-profit missions organization, through whom I contribute my time as a trainer for other Christian school leaders around the world. (Financial donations to RFH help to underwrite that ministry).
If I can be of service to your school, university, ministry or organization, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to assisting you in any way that I am able.
All my best,
Toby A. Travis, Ed.D.
Headmaster, Desert Christian Schools
