Ms. Denise AlJohar

Welcome to Applied English and Reading (Special Education Resource English and Project Read) at Travis High School. I am excited to be working with our terrific Travis Tigers again; this is my sixth year teaching English at Travis. Prior to teaching public school, I received teaching awards as a Graduate Student Teacher at the University of California, Irvine, where I completed my Bachelor's and Master's degrees and advanced to candidacy for a Ph.D in the Social Sciences. After arriving in Texas (I am Kansas born and raised 20 years), I volunteered in FBISD schools while raising my three sons (all FBISD graduates). Literacy skills continue to be essential for growth and success. I am eager to help empower students in reading and writing, supporting individual strengths and challenges. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Looking forward to an engaging and productive year!
