On this episode of the Classroom Matters podcast, I sit down with Dr. Toby Travis, founder of TrustED and an experienced teacher and school administrator, currently serving as the Superintendent of the Village Christian Academy in Fayetteville, NC. Toby has a story of working in a highly dysfunctional and toxic school environments, and through the implementation of intentional action steps, organizations experience mission-fulfillment and a sense of community well-being. Dr. Travis is also the author of the award-winning book “TrustED: The Bridge to School Improvement” – available at Amazon, featured in Forbes, and named “Book of The Month” (November), and nominated for “Book of The Year” (2021) by The Magic Pen.

During this conversation we discuss:

  • The biggest issues with trust in the school environment today including  teachers, administrators, students and parents
  • Assessing trust issues in a school setting
  • How the trust of a leader be repaired
  • Advice/strategies for increasing the level of trust in a school district
