7th Grade Math

Mrs. PowersHello!  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 2021


Happy New Year! Please don’t tell my 6th grader that I said that - she informed me that I would jinx our year.  My response, I am going to enjoy every minute and find the positive.


We are going to begin this semester learning about graphing linear equations. All of the hard work the students put in last semester will really help them transition into our new chapter.  I added materials for them to use during remote learning in the packet pickup.  Please remind students that they are responsible for returning rulers and bringing their papers back to school when they return. We should finish with this unit by the end of January.

While we are in remote learning, your student will be working over google meets and on their own.  It is imperative that the students work diligently during class time to complete their work.  I will be using their completed work as a measure of attendance.  During our class time - if they are having any troubles, they are welcome to come back online for assistance from Mr. Hopp and myself.  I will also be available during the day, checking emails off and on from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm.  If I do not respond immediately, please reassure your student that I will be responding ASAP. I plan to have the students check in on Google Meets at the beginning of math everyday.

I would like to keep the students from having too much stress about homework at home, please have your students work to complete any problems, not completed in class, during the evenings.  If this is taking them more than 20 to 30 minutes, please reach out to discuss this with me, so that we can make arrangements suitable for your student.

Math Intervention

These students are working on their individual growth and working towards building their math knowledge.  During remote learning - students are to join our google meets on Wednesdays and Thursdays, in place of the daily elective. Students can access the google meets from our google classroom.  During our time together I will be checking in on their math class work and having them log into Moby Max to keep practicing their skill sets.

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. I will checking emails off and on from the hours of 7:30 am to 4:00 pm during remote learning.
Please try to stay warm and healthy!

Mrs. Powers
