7th Grade Math

Mrs. 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!

Powers - On Point

September/October 2022

Hello Families!

Your seventh graders have been working hard on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers- I am very proud of them!


One thing that I am seeing in our class is that all the students need some additional practice with multiplication tables - math, like a sport or music, takes continual practice. At school, we are supporting this in class with quick reviews and opportunities to practice along with our fast paced curriculum.


A great way to help support this at home is to randomly ask multiplication facts, or when you are driving take the numbers on the license plate in front of you and ask your student to multiply the numbers. Family game nights of Yahtzee! are also fun and a great way to sneak in math facts!


We are excited to be moving into our expressions and equations units!  Be ready to hear all about those sneaky letters causing havoc in our math class!

If at any time you have questions, or concerns, please reach to me.

Thanks!

Stacie Powers
