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



Happy Fall Y’all!


I love this time of year, with the changing colors of the leaves and cooler days!


I am so proud of how well the 7th grade math students and math intervention students are doing! 


7th grade math has finished up our initial units on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing integers - their practice and hard work has expanded to simplifying expressions and solving equations.


Our first Learning Target Assessment will be on Thursday, October 8th.  Students will complete practice problems on Tuesday, have an in-class review on Wednesday and complete the assessment on Thursday.


Monday October 13th, we will begin our geometry unit, this unit is SO MUCH FUN!  The students will extend their knowledge of area, perimeter to three-dimensional shapes.  In this unit the students will be working in teams to design and build a pizza box and logo - based on the skills they are learning.  Their time together as a team will be limited to no more than 10 or 15 minutes due to our current mask mandates.  I will be asking the students to touch base with each other over their school email, chats and meets to account for any extra time they may need to work together.


Math intervention, we have been practicing our multiplication tables, increasing their answer speed and accuracy.  We have also been working with fractions, helping the students to add, subtract, multiply and divide.  Math is a sport, it requires practice, and these students are doing a fantastic job.  Students are also working with their individual needs using an online math program called Moby Max - this program is designed to meet their specific needs.


I am checking in with each student and helping them with their work from their specific math class.  Mrs. Eisenmann and I touch base often and she keeps me apprised of any struggles she sees the math intervention students having in her math class.  Please encourage your student(s) to bring their math questions to math intervention, I am here to help support them and to see them succeed.  We can also work on math redo’s, review for tests, etc…


As always, please reach out with any celebrations, questions or concerns that you may have.  I am at the school Tuesday through Friday, noon to 4pm.  My email is: staciepowers@re3j.com


Autumn wishes!

Mrs. Powers
