Mr. Cruz

Hi! My name is Travis Cruz, this will be my third year at PCK. Along with teaching Physical Education, I am also the Athletic Director! I have a B.A. from Metro State University in Human Performance and Sport with an emphasis in Sports Management. Teaching has always been a dream of mine, with an amazing journey it has taken me on thus far. Having the opportunity to play baseball on a college scholarship at Fort Scott Community College & Washburn University. I focused my course work on becoming a physical education teacher. I am grateful to have been able to teach special education at Meadow View Elementary in the past, before following my passion of teaching physical education!

I believe that through physical education it can teach us many life lessons on how to overcome challenges, be a team player, motivate ourselves and others, except and learn from failure, build character, and live a healthy life style.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and our 2 dogs. We like outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, boating, and attending sporting events. I also enjoy coaching baseball to all ages. I am also a die-hard Broncos fan and was able to attend Super Bowl 50!
