Mr. Travis Stalford

I was born in Joplin Missouri but grew up in Edna Kansas. I graduated high school from Labette County high school in 1991. After high school I graduate from Coffeyville Community College and then went to Pittsburg State University were I earned my BSED in Biology and a minor in Physical Science in 1995. Later I earned my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Emporia State. I started my educational career in Butler Missouri were I taught science and coached wrestling and track. After two years at Butler my family and I moved back to Coffeyville to be closer to family. In 1998 I started teaching at Field Kindley High school and also coached wrestling, track and football. In 2005 I moved to Caney so my wife and I could teach in the same district. I also taught science and coached wrestling and track. In 2013 I came back to Coffeyville to be the high school assistant principal and two years later became the current Lead Principal at the high school.

While in college I meet my wife Lora and we had two children Hunter and Colton. We are a family that enjoys sports specifically wrestling. We spent many years driving all over the county wrestling. Both of the boys were fortunate to have successful careers earning multiple state placing and state titles at both the kids and high school level. Spending time with my family, sports and enjoying the great outdoors rounds up my hobbies.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with great talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent.”

Mr. Wade Welch

I'm excited to join the #Nado family in Coffeyville as Assistant Principal/Activities Director at Field Kindley High School!  I am coming from Osawatomie where I have worked the last 16 years as a teacher, assistant technology director, and assistant principal/activities director.  During my time in Osawatomie I also had the opportunity to coach baseball, football, basketball, and scholars bowl prior to moving into administration.  In addition to teaching, I've also worked as a KSHSAA official for both football and basketball.  During those years, I was fortunate enough to work state championship football games and state basketball tournaments.
 
I am married to a FKHS graduate from the class of 2001, Anne (Miesner) Welch. We love spending time with our dog, traveling, and watching live music.  More casual hobbies include riding my bike, playing golf, cooking, and spending time with our family.  
 
I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities in Coffeyville and will strive to do everything I can to make sure USD #445 continues to serve the needs of the community and its students!
