Welcome to My Classroom
Teacher: Christian Held
Subject: Mathematics AIS
Math is the language that our universe is written in! I am excited that I have been given the opportunity to work with so many children and to show them that math can be interesting and fun. This is my third year teaching in Medina as a Math AIS provider and I'm looking forward to a long career in this district.
Over the last 10 years I have had a lot of math and teaching experiences. I graduated from Niagara University in 2007 with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and then earned my Masters Degree, from the same university, in Education in 2009. Since then I have taught Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus 1, and Calculus 2 at Wilson High School. Then I spent some time as an adjunct professor at Niagara University and Niagara County Community College. Next, I taught Math AIS in Barker for grades 5-8. These experiences have given me a good insight as to what students need to learn in each grade level to be successful in mathematics.
I am also a large fan of the sport of wrestling. After coaching at the varsity level in Wilson for several years, I started coaching modified wrestling in Medina. I also coach a college club wrestling team at Niagara University. I'm looking forward to helping build a strong wrestling program in Medina and producing strong wrestlers with strong character.
My advice to all of my students is to always do their homework and to take care of each other.
