Ms. Denise Aljohar Ousley

Welcome to Applied English and Reading (Resource English and Project Read) at Travis High School. This is my fourth year teaching English at Travis. Prior to teaching public high school, I was a Graduate Student Teacher at the University of California, Irvine. While raising three wonderful sons here in Texas (all FBISD graduates), I have worked as a private tutor. I have also conducted and published first-hand research of multi-cultural patterns in a Houston community. Communication and literacy skills are essential for success and life-long fulfillment. I am honored to share my love of reading and writing with our terrific Tigers.
