About Me:

Ms. Isoline is our art teacher at THES. She grew up in Fort Worth. She moved to Austin in 1978 and raised her daughter here. Ms. Isoline first starting working in retail management and buying, but felt a calling to educate. Her first teaching job was at the Austin State Hospital. In 1998 she joined the THES faculty, and has been here ever since! Along with teaching art at THES, Ms. Webb organizes an exhibition of student work at the Performing Arts Center, sponsors the Young Artists’ Day at THES and donates her time every year to help THES students participate in the Travis Heights Art Walk. Our beautiful artwork is displayed throughout the school all year long. Stop by and check out what our creative students have produced!

About Me:

I grew up in Richardson, TX (Dallas) I graduated from Richardson High School in 1993. I graduated from Austin College in Sherman, TX in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a minor in Psychology. I continued at Austin College to get my Master of Arts in Elementary Education in December of 1998. I began teaching music in January of 1999 in my home town of Richardson, TX at Prestonwood Elementary. Although I loved my school, I needed a change! So in 2006, I moved to Austin and began teaching music here at Travis Heights Elementary!

Library–Julie Underwood

My Email:

About Me:

I’m a Texan born and bred, but my world travel bucket list is alarmingly long. I received my Master’s Degree in Library Science and BS in Elementary Education from Texas Woman’s University, along with Reading and ESL Certifications.

I have spent more than 20 years in education, and enjoy learning many new things daily. I’ve used a few musical bones in my body over the years, and broke just one of them during my 5 years skating with the Texas Rollergirls.

I enjoy spending my time reading anything I can get my hands on, running, watching documentaries, searching for that perfect midcentury whatnot, and tackling awesome adventures with my family!
