  • Mustang Moms Group Reflect on Fall Fellowship

    Houston Christian High School is incredibly blessed to have a group of women who come together to pray for the school, its students and staff, and grow as a community. Mustang Moms group, which is comprised of women with students from 9-12th grade, just completed their Fall bible study, a 7-week study on the Character of Christ - Kindness, Compassion, Patience, Forgiveness, Humility, and Joy.  
     
    Mustang Moms is a great place to get to know and learn from others. Whether you have a senior or freshmen or anywhere in between, come and experience the joy of fellowship.  Another study will happen in the Spring, and to be sure to receive those details, please join the email list by contacting Linda McDowell McDowell.linda3@gmail.com or Robynne Warren rwarren22@att.net. No in-depth Bible Study experience is required. Just come and enjoy! We are all learning.
     
    See what others have to say about Mustang Moms:

    "I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to participate in Mustang Moms Bible Study.  It was a fulfilling experience to meet other moms weekly and share our thoughts about that week's lesson.  Being the mom of a new freshman, I didn't know anyone. This wasn't just a bible study, but rather a weekly friends meet-up that shared faith, advice, and support."

    "I've been part of Mustang Moms for the past two years, and it has quickly become one of my favorite ways to connect with other parents walking in similar seasons."
     
     "I loved Mustang Moms! As a mom with a transfer student this gave me a great place to start meeting people and building friendships. It is a study and support group and I look forward to attending in the Spring."
     
     "As a transfer parent, I originally joined Mustang Mom's to connect with some of the other moms at school.  In addition to the friendships, what I gained from participating in Mustang Mom's was organized, scheduled time to spend with the Bible and time to analyze God's steadfast word and apply it to the unique, ever-changing world."
     
    "Walking into this school my daughter nor I knew anyone.  Mustang Moms was my first stop to make connections and new mom friends.   I not only grew in my faith, but I grew in my friendships.  I loved asking questions and hearing that I was not alone.  This is my third year to do Mustang Moms and I would recommend it to all.  It is a safe, loving and fun environment.  You will love it!"
  • DSP Director Dr. Droz Published in Prestigious Journal

    Join us as we congratulate our Distinguished Scholars Program Director, Dr. Patricia Droz, for her article, “The Five-Year Job Interview: A call for more bureaucracy on the tenure line" being published in College Composition and Communication, a periodical of the National Council of Teachers of English. We are extremely proud of Dr. Droz’s accomplishment. The success is just one of many earned by Dr. Droz, and we are incredibly grateful for her commitment to education.
     
    With an impact factor of .91 and an acceptance rate of only 10%, an article published in CCC is among the highest achievements a composition scholar can earn. Dr. Droz's collaborator on the project was her longtime co-writer and friend, University of Houston - Clear Lake professor Dr. Lorie Jacobs. Their research looked at the workload and working conditions of pre-tenure university writing faculty across the nation. Drs. Droz and Jacobs applied organizational psychology's Job Demands-Resources (JDR) model to explain how role ambiguity creates occupational stress (a job demand), which could be mitigated by the “job resource” of greater bureaucracy, including clearer promotion and tenure guidelines and stronger feedback from supervisors in the form of a more developed performance appraisal system. They found that a more structured approach might have several benefits: reduce affective/emotional labor, improve work conditions for women and minorities, and provide departments with consistent arguments they can make to administration in favor of retaining valuable faculty members.

  • Campus Improvement Announcement

    Houston Christian always prioritizes the safety and well-being of our students, and we're excited to report that we have completed the installation of the new bipolar ionization technology throughout our entire campus! 
     
    Bipolar ionization is a technology that is integrated into the HVAC system. It's an active process that provides continuous disinfection. It uses specialized tubes that take oxygen molecules from the air - in our case, the outside air - and convert them into charged (ionized) atoms that then cluster around microparticles such as airborne pathogens, allergens, and mold. The ionized atoms effectively surround and deactivate harmful substances including the Coronavirus. 
     
    Thank you to our many donors who helped ensure our learning environment stayed as safe and healthy as possible!
