Ms. Denise Aljohar (Ousley)

Welcome, I am happy to be teaching Applied English Language Arts (ELA) and Reading at Travis High School. A life-long learner/teacher and mother of three FBISD graduates, (one son was in the special education program with a specific learning disability), I am passionate about education and the importance of reading, writing, and critical thinking skills for student and life-long success. I hold a Master’s degree in the Social Sciences from the University of California, Irvine and teaching certifications in Special Education, ELA 8-12, ELA 4-8, Journalism 8-12, and ESL K-12. In addition to my previous volunteering and chairing school yearbooks, I substitute taught in FBISD, managed sports' leagues, and tutored writing, Spanish, and English to kids ages 4-20 (five years experience tutoring students diagnosed with ASD). 

Please feel free to contact me at any time, email, or text 281-804-1134, with all questions or concerns. I am available to meet with you at your request. It is an honor to work with our students this year at Travis High School. Together, let's trot forward Travis Tigers, ahead to new adventures and inspiring learning experiences!
