We are an innovative, dynamic, and mission-based high school bound by a common goal: to inspire and prepare students of limited economic resources to succeed in college and lead their communities as compassionate, committed, and competent men and women for others for the greater glory of God.
We are looking for data- driven enthusiastic individuals who desire to work in an organization that is having a life-changing impact on Houston’s youth.
Our ideal candidate embodies Cristo Rey Jesuit values:
We are Committed to Justice
Cristo Rey Jesuit faculty and staff have a demonstrated commitment to serve an underserved population of students. Working at Cristo Rey Jesuit is to become part of a movement. We are passionate about education reform and our ideal candidates have experience working with marginalized communities, and thrive in a fast-paced environment.
We are Intellectually Competent:
Cristo Rey Jesuit faculty members maintain high academic expectations for all students and develop rigorous lessons through a culturally relevant lens for predominantly first generation, low-income students. We commit to implementing best-in-class, research-based instructional practices that advance our mission.
We are Open to Growth
Cristo Rey Jesuit faculty and staff members operate in a growth mindset. We develop professionally by collaborating with other teachers and leaders to improve student learning. We participate in professional development, and provide and receive feedback from school leaders. We proactively seek solutions and approach challenges as opportunities.
We are Loving
The great Catholic theologian and philosopher St. Thomas Aquinas defines love as “the choice to will the good of the other.” Cristo Rey Jesuit faculty and staff do this every day in and out of the classroom, by preparing our students to succeed and lead in college and beyond. Cristo Rey Jesuit engages parents/guardians in the academic success of our students.
We are Religious
Cristo Rey Jesuit faculty and staff are actively involved in the School’s religious life and take an active position in celebrating and upholding the Catholic and Jesuit identity of Cristo Rey Jesuit.
“There are many aspects of working at Cristo Rey Jesuit that are enjoyable: flexibility with curriculum choices, the extra prep time due to the work days, small departments. But at the end of the day, what drives me to continue to be better as a teacher are the students that are in my classroom. To see them after graduation–one of their proudest achievements–always brings me to tears and I can't wait to see what good they will do in this world.” Douglas Vranderic, Mathematics Department Chair
“I have the academic freedom to create lessons that engage my students using different learning styles and I am supported by the administration team to create these lessons. Because of my years of teaching experience, I know that every child does not learn the same way. I enjoy finding the method that works for every child to learn and be successful in my classroom." Chrystal Hunter, Faculty
