Hello parents and students of Travis Elementary! My name is David Wells, your new principal, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be working with you and your children for the 2016-2017 School year. Travis Elementary is a wonderful school and I am fortunate to be part of the Travis family here in Mineral Wells.
I have 13 years of experience in education spread over a few different school districts. I am blessed with a wife, Lindsey, who also works for MWISD in the capacity of Math Instructional Coach. We have one daughter, Kambri, who attends Travis Elementary. The final piece of our family is our 3 year old toy poodle, Thunder. My family enjoys traveling, fishing, watching sporting events, reading and backyard barbeques.
One more tidbit about me. I was not always the greatest student. I did not become a good student until I realized that school is not an “event” that you are attending. When I began to see education as a body of work that proves to open doors of opportunity; I became self-motivated to learn. I am 39 years old, and I truly can’t wait to see what I will learn tomorrow. Knowledge is the most powerful tool a human being can have. I challenge you to learn all you can and open those doors.
We have a great group of students here at Travis Elementary and they are my number one priority. I am here to make a positive difference in their lives. If you ever need me, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone or drop by. Please feel free to contact me at 940-325-7801.
