The Travis Institute of Educational Policy was founded to be a beacon for teachers in the State of Texas.


Frustrated that the voice of teachers was not being heard on a variety of fronts, our founder, Tera Collum set out to build an organization that will help teachers become better teachers, impact policy, and feel confident they will have a secure future. Our mission is clear, To improve the education of all Texas students and empower teachers with support, education and guidance. Whatever it takes, we will be here to stand by the teachers of Texas.
