Travino is now at Saddleback. Teachers are meant to inspire, not deplete the spirit the way he does when he ignores those that are not his favorites, especially those with developmental challenges. He definitely has knowledge and experience in theater and may be a fine director, but could use some teaching sensitivity training. I wouldn't say "strict" so much as rigid and inflexible,

Come back, Mr. Trevino! Unlike Hovis, Mr. Trevino is musically-educated, professional, and compassionate. Hovis's shows are a disgrace to what Mr. Trevino directed. Not once has Hovis's productions measured up to 1/4 of Mr. Trevino's. With Mr. T, students actually enjoyed choir. BRING TREVINO BACK!!

Best choral and drama teacher University High ever had. He was so dedicated to the students and their needs. You could tell students came first. We all miss him! He was way better than the new guy, Hovis. Bring back Mr. T!

Mr. T is a great drama teacher. He is a lot of fun too. Yes he has his favorites, but if you do what he says and actually play games and have fun in his class, you'll be part of that group. I fell in love with drama this year and this is my first year taking it cuz im a senior, but i am so glad i did or i would have regreted it. It is so much fun!

Nice teacher, but he doesn't really give you a chance unless you're one of his favorites. It was too late by the time her realized I had talent.

Well... he tires. Participating in drama is a lot of fun, and the shows are great. Performing arts at UNI is intimidating... but join and get sucked in!
