7th and 8th Grade Math

   My name is Tim Ahrens and I have been teaching for twenty-three years, six years in 5th grade and 17 years teaching middle school math. I am so excited this is my 15th year at H. Clarke Powers and grateful to be part of the teaching staff here.


   I am originally from Michigan, graduating from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts degree. After moving to California, I earned my teaching credential at Sonoma State University and a master’s degree, focusing on Curriculum & Instruction in math, through the University of Texas at Arlington.


   I am proud to be the member of the H. Clarke Powers community as both a teacher and a parent.  My son, Ben, is currently a 6th grade student in Mrs. Roberts' class.  My twin daughters, Zoie and Arya, are currently in 4th grade.  Both are in Mrs. Frey's class.   We consider H. Clarke Powers families to be members of our extended family!
