Mr. Robert Travis


Welcome back to school!  I am so excited to get into the second semester of the school year, and looking forward to seeing some of you in the school again as well! 

For those who don't know me, I'm Mr. Travis.  This is my 15th year teaching music in District 162 at Matteson School.  I'm originally from West Michigan (Grand Rapids area), but have lived in Illinois since I started here in 2006.  I earned my Bachelor of Music at Western Michigan University in 1996, and I returned to college at Grand Valley State University in 2004 to earn teacher certification.

I love all things music, and spend much of my spare time in various musical pursuits.  In addition to working for District 162, I have a part-time job as a pianist/worship leader at a church in Homewood.  

I enjoy spending time with my dog, learning new things on the computer  (as far as content creation and some programming), and reading every chance I get.


I have a page set up for each class I see.  You can join our regular Google Meets from 5 minutes before its scheduled time onward each period.  Here are the times. Please email me if you need a class code.
