Mrs. Candace Thorpe


I believe in our motto “We are one. We are family. We are Tigers.” This is my second go-around at Travis, so I truly bleed Scarlet and Grey.

I am a product of Fort Bend ISD graduating from Dulles High School in 1994. I graduated from Houston Baptist University in 2004 with a double degree in Mass Media and Speech Communications.

Prior to teaching, I spent seven years as a sports writer, photographer and editor at Houston-area community newspapers.

This is my 17th year in education, 16 of which have been spent in FBISD at Travis and M R Wood Center for Learning.

I teach Debate, Photojournalism and Professional Communications. I am the assistant debate coach and an Ambush sponsor.

I have been married for 13 years and have two very active boys. I am the epitome of a #Boymom and Baseball Mom. I love photography, cooking, reading and BASEBALL!!!!
