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

January 2020

 

7th Grade Math -

Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed their break and is looking forward to the new year! I spent lots of time enjoying my kids and husband, savoring great food, binge watching Netflix shows, and planning for our semester ahead! This semester, we will continue to work through our advanced math curriculum, beginning back with a geometry unit (Chapter D). In place of a final Learning Target Assessment at the end of the chapter - I have planned for two unit quizzes and a group activity. The group activities are pulled directly from our book assessments and allow the students a chance to work together in small groups. I am very excited to give the students an opportunity to utilize their talents collectively, and have some fun with our math! In addition to introducing small group activities, I have also created a chapter syllabus. This syllabus will be sent home with the students on January 7th. Please review the syllabus with them and return it to me, signed by yourself and them. I will take note of all the students who have shown me a signed copy and return their copy back to them for reference in their notebooks. This syllabus outlines the lessons we will be covering in class, practice assignments, due dates, quiz reviews, quiz dates, and group activity due dates. This syllabus is subject to change based on school closures, safety drills, time needed for whole class understanding, etc... If any changes are made to the syllabus, an updated copy will be available for the students on our Google Classroom website. This semester, I will continue to be available for the students before school and during lunch. If your student would like to meet with me to review questions, go over lesson practice problems, retake quizzes, etc, I simply ask that they schedule time with me before hand. If at any time you have any questions, or concerns, I ask that you please contact me via email, phone or schedule time for us to meet. I welcome the opportunity to work closely with you to see your student succeed! Happy 2020! Mrs. Powers staciepowers@re3j.com
