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

April 2020

7th Grade Math -

Spring is here! Longer, warmer days, fresh air and time for new adventures!


While I am sad that we are not able to be inside the classroom with our students, I am excited to begin a new adventure together!  


In order to ease the transition from traditional classroom instruction to remote learning, your middle school staff has put together (in connection with the full CCA staff) a remote learning calendar, zoom schedules, office hours and how-to videos for accessing website sites, navigating ebooks, and so on.  Please be patient as we all work together to make this successful for our CCA community!

We are blessed to have already been working with the Big Ideas Math curriculum.  Big Ideas Math has an awesome online platform that offers more than copies of the students books. BigIdeasMath.com also includes online tutorial videos that walk through example problems step-by-step.  Through the website, we are also able to distribute practice problems online. Students will submit their answers online, allowing for electronic communication between teacher and student. 


You can access my “how-to-access BigIdeas Math online” video here. Just click on the red font for a link.  This video walks through accessing the book, using the online dashboard, finding assignments, watching tutorial videos, etc...


During this time, please follow CCA instruction and do not deliver any materials back to us in a hard copy format.  If we ask to see your student’s worked out problems, please scan their hard copy, or take a picture and have them email it back to their teacher.  I have attached a “How-To-Scan to pdf from an iPhone, iPad, iPod” document to their math google classroom.


Please check your emails often for communication from the CCA staff to you.  Students should also be checking their re3j.com email daily for updated assignments, instructions, etc…  We will be communicating with students through Google Classroom which sends emails directly to the student’s school account.


Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate through uncharted waters.  It’s gonna be a ride for sure, I bet it will be fun! ;)


Please reach out with any questions or concerns.  I will be responding to emails as quickly as possible
