    Us Welcome to my website.

    My name is Dave Powers, and this will be my fourteenth year teaching mathematics at Wydown Middle School.

    This I Believe
    Teaching is both a science and an art.
    There are no shortcuts.
    To lay the strongest foundation in math, you must build conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and the capacity to problem solve.
    Problem solving is what you do when you don't know the answer.
    Grades are important, but they are not everything.
    I love the contest winners, I love the strugglers, and I love all the ones in-between. I love that I get to teach all of them not some of them.  
    I love kids and I love teaching math!
