Hi! My name is Cortney Powers and I've been teaching math for 14 years (12 years at Jefferson High School in Los Angeles and 2 years at Heritage High School). This year I will be teaching Algebra 2 and MSJC Dual Enrollment Math.
I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in Mathematics from UC Riverside before I began my teaching career in 2005. Later in 2018, I earned my second master's degree in Educational Leadership from CSU Dominguez Hills. In college, I learned that the greek word for mathematics comes from máthēma which means "that which is learnt." I have been in the pursuit of mathematics/knowledge my whole life and love to be a part of my students' journey as they pursue deeper knowledge into their passions using the math around them. I can't wait to meet you all and work with you this year.
I will be using Canvas to post class information such as: Lectures, Notes, Assignments, and Quizzes/Test.
I am also one of the advisors for the Black Student Union (BSU) and a teacher representative for African American Parent Advisory Council (AAPAC).
