Mr. John Ousley
I have been teaching students in Austin ISD elementary schools for over 14 years now. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2005 with a degree in Art Education. I started teaching because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of children. I teach Art and enjoy sharing the knowledge I have learned with young students. I have an art background in drawing, painting, film making, graphic design, ceramics, and print making. The medium of art I enjoy working with most is painting. I have worked to organize fundraiser and art shows for AISD. I was selected 2016-2017 AISD campus “Teacher of the Year” at Brooke Elementary. In addition I work for Indian Roller a music venue in south Austin. I run sound, DJ, book local Austin musicians, and keep the bar clean as my side job. I work with my side employers’ to help with fundraising and events here in Austin. On what free time I have I spend with my wife and 7 year old son. I enjoy outdoor actives here in Austin. I look forward to this year at Brooke Elementary as an Art teacher. My door is always open if you have any questions. I am honored to work with the children of this community. I have been a Texan all my life and am glad to be here in Austin Texas. Go Longhorns
