Hello and Welcome!
I am Ms Christian, one of the Mathematic teachers in the Teaching Career Academy at Hollywood High School where I teach Algebra 1, Geometry, and Transition to College Mathematics and Statistics. This is my third year teaching at HHS.
A bit about myself - I completed my Bachelor's Degree at Northwestern University and a Master's in Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Thereafter, I worked for 5 years as a Research and Data Analyst for the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families. While I liked my job, I preferred my volunteer time as a middle school math tutor and decided on a career change. I enrolled in UCLA's Master's in Education Program with a focus on Secondary Mathematics and now truly enjoy all aspects of my career. I focus on fostering positive students' mathematical identities in my classes through growth mindset activities and real work applications.

In my free time I enjoy hiking, baking, reading, and skiing.
My syllabi are attached.
Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime!
