7th Grade Math

Stacie Powers
Hello!  My name is Stacie Powers and I am the 7th Grade Math Teacher here at CCA.


While my background didn't begin in math, I have always loved numbers and solving problems.  I bring to the classroom a unique perspective on how math and numbers play into our daily lives.  My career began in the corporate business world, working with businesses to build their companies, launch new divisions and provide a full spectrum of marketing channels for their sales teams to venture into.  With each new adventure, that I helped drive, we always utilized math.  Yes, I am one person who can truly say that I have used my algebra, calculus and geometry classes beyond the classroom!

I am married to one amazing gentleman and we have three amazing children (yes, I might be a little biased).  As my time with my family brought me home from the corporate world - I began to spend time in my children's classrooms, which soon lead me to substitute teaching.  Spending time in the classroom has become my passion!  I love working along side the students and seeing them succeed!  I have a calling to work with each student, to understand what drives them, and to see how I can help them become more!

This year we will be focusing on some pretty challenging math tasks - but nothing our students cannot handle.  I believe in the Power of "Yet"...  we may not have it today, not yet, but we will keep trying and we will work to succeed!Math Teachers

7th Grade Math



Welcome Back!

Wow Middle School, I have really missed you all; parents and students!

As we venture into our 2020/2021 school year I cannot help but to be excited!  I know many people are unsure how this year will go; and to be honest, I am unsure as well.  Rather than daunt on the unknown, I am planning for some rocky waters to help make our voyage smooth sailing!  Did anyone tell you how much I love spending time by and on the water?  Oh - this year is going to be fun! I see many water, sailing, and voyage metaphors ahead!

We are starting our school year in-person.  The CCA reopening committee has shared information on how this will specifically work.  If you have questions regarding the plan, please reach out and ask, I am happy to answer any questions that I can.  

In the attached letter (Powers-7th Grade Math-Classroom Practices and Expectations) I share how I see our classroom functioning safely and productively.  I have also outlined my grading policies, how students can access missing work, how to read infinite campus grade markings, etc..  If you have any questions throughout the year, I ask that you refer to this document and then reach out to me.  I am always happy to address your concerns, I encourage you to have your student do the same.

To begin this school year, we will be reviewing Integers, how to add, subtract, multiple and divide negative and positive numbers.  This unit picks up from where 6th graded ended last Spring.  Using integers is an integral part of our 7th grade math curriculum, your student will be continuously practicing these concepts throughout the year.

Please ask your student to share their Integer Unit Syllabus with you.  They will need to upload a signed copy to our google classroom by Tuesday, August 25th.

I look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Mrs. Powers
