Little about me!

Hello, my name is Travis Nelson-Ortiz, the principal of Waggoner Elementary School. I am a proud father of 2 sons who are bilingual and have started their successful careers. I have been in education for 22 years. I have taught all grade levels from kindergarten to 8th grade. My expertise and background in education is in bilingual education, English Language Development and reading. I pride myself on being bilingual and able to communicate with families. I consider all students at Waggoner Elementary as my own children. The 2022-2023 school year is going to be amazing because we have some exciting events planned! As principal, my goal is to fully integrate social, emotional, and academic development into TK - 2nd grade. By the end of your child's second grade, he or she will be at or above grade level in all academic areas. If you have any questions or concerns, you can either call or email me, or stop by the office. I look forward to working with every family to ensure your children's education is a success.
