Mrs. Juanita Lozano-Gaitan


My name is Juanita Lozano-Gaitan.  I am the Criminal Justice teacher at Pearland High School.  I earned a bachelors degree in Criminology and Corrections at Sam Houston State University.  I retired from Harris County Community Supervision and Corrections where I worked as a Probation Officer for 27 years in various capacities including a juvenile residential facility, an adult  substance abuse residential facility and almost ten years in a felony district court.  In 2012, I resigned my position as a probation officer to pursue a personal goal to teach criminal justice in high school.  I myself participated in a law enforcement program in high school which helped set me on my career path in criminal justice.  

It is my goal as the Criminal Justice teacher and Criminal Justice Club sponsor at Pearland High School to provide students the information and opportunities to help them determine if this is a career path for which they are suited.   

I am a resident of Pearland where I live with my husband of twenty-five years and my two daughters.  My oldest daughter was a member of the 2015-2016 Lady Oiler Softball team who went to the 2016 UIL State Championship. She was a graduate of the Class of 2016 and will attend Blinn College as a member of the Lady Buccaneers Softball Team.  My youngest daughter is junior at PHS and is a member of the Lady Oilers Golf Team.
