      Mr. Christopher Gloege

      Hello, I am Christopher Gloege (pronounced Glow-guh), MacArthur’s newest Assistant Principal. While I am very excited to step into this new position, I am not new to the MacArthur community. In addition to being a Mac alumnus (proud member of the class of 1992 and a student of the original campus), I have also taught, sponsored, and coached at Mac since 2009. Overall, this is my twenty-first year with North East ISD. In my time at Mac, I have primarily taught U.S. History and AP U.S. History along with Economics and most recently, AP Macroeconomics. I earned my undergraduate degree from Trinity University and my master’s degree and Principal certification from Lamar University. 


      My wife, Amy, teaches third grade in the cluster at Northwood Elementary School and is a proud Unicorn and an amazing teacher. We met at Trinity and have been married for over 25 wonderful years. Our son attended Northwood, KSAT, and then Garner, and is now a freshman at MacArthur which means that we are also proud Brahma parents and avid supporters of the Orchestra and Soccer programs. Go Brahmas! As I transition from the classroom to this new phase of my career, I am so pleased that I will be able to continue serving the MacArthur community. While I love teaching in the classroom, I look forward to the new challenges and growth opportunities this position presents and am so glad I will be able to continue to proudly say, WE ARE MAC!

      Edward Lozano

      Greetings Brahma Nation--

      My name is Edward Lozano and I am your newly assigned Assistant Principal here at MacArthur High School. I am married to my beautiful wife, Tina, who is an Administrator in the district as well. We have six children ranging in ages from 25-35. As a leader on our campus, I will bring a focus to honesty, integrity, and most of all hard work.

      During my coaching and educational career I have taught, coached, and been an administrator in several different districts and at both of the secondary levels. I have worked in Garland ISD, Edgewood ISD, and finally North East ISD where I have been for the last 18 years. In my years with NEISD, I have taught, coached, and been an administrator at Jackson Middle School, Eisenhower Middle School, Tex Hill Middle School, and L.E.E. High School.

      In education, an educator must examine each student individually and identify the student’s strengths and weaknesses. Getting down to the basics is one way that teachers are able to get through to students and build a strong academic foundation. As a leader on our campus, I work with teachers to guide them to find and understand their student’s strengths and encourage them to reach new heights in developing their skills. Bertice Berry, PhD. says, “The student with the biggest attitude is the student with the biggest insecurity.” I understand that teachers have many different obligations and duties and I make it a point to assist the teachers in finding ways to help the students work through those insecurities as learners and members of the campus community. It is all about the students… EVERY STUDENT, EVERYDAY!

      I wanted to say thank you for allowing me the privilege to be a part of your team and a member of your family. WE ARE MAC!

      Some of my responsibilities include working with our Magnet Program students at MacArthur High School to include Mac Up, Dual Language, AVID, and iCSI.  I also work with our Science teachers.  My objectives are to prepare our students to be successful in whatever they choose to do after high school.  This is my 18th year at MacArthur High School, my son graduated from MacArthur High School, and I want to provide all students with the same opportunities and experiences my son enjoyed during his time here.
