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

Powers - On Point

February 2020

7th Grade Math -

For me, February holds many emotions. Having owned and operated a flower shop, I greatly enjoy no longer feeling the emotions of deadlines! :) This February we will have student-led conferences February 11, 12 and 13th. We hope that you will join us and see how hard your student is working, where they are excelling and where they see themselves in their classes and their work. I am very excited to see the student's promote themselves and their work - they are all AMAZING! January ended with the end of our first geometry unit and I am very proud of the students. In general, Geometry can be difficult for some, and others just have a natural love for shapes, angles and measures. All the students did very well adjusting and working together in their group projects. Mrs. Contreras, and myself, greatly enjoyed their presentations and creativity with their pizza logos and business names! If your student did not turn in their Pizza Logo packet - they will need to do so for credit. This project is counted as Learning Target Assessment grade and is weighted heavier than practice assignments. The students agreed that they liked working together and having a final project rather than a final end exam! This month, we will continue in our geometry unit, moving to Surface Area and Volume. I will be sending home a new syllabus and a parent newsletter. Please ask your students to share these tools with you. I will again ask that your student show you the newsletter, have you (and them) sign their copy, and return the syllabus to school. Mrs. Contreras and/or myself will note that we have seen a signed copy and will return the syllabus for the student to use throughout this unit. The parent newsletter is for the student's to use a reference sheet throughout the chapter, please ask them to keep it with their math notes. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you! Mrs. Powers staciepowers@re3j.com
