Hi everyone! I am Coach Guthrie. I am one of the PE & Health teachers here at Swansboro Middle School. I also coach Track and Field in the Spring.
I graduated Coastal Community College in May 2014 with my Associate in Arts. I continued my education at UNC-Wilmington and graduated in May 2016 with my Bachelors of Arts in Physical Education and Health K-12. I am currently pursuing my M.Ed Physcial Education & Health online through UNCW.
I started teaching at SBMS in 2016 and I can honestly say that love being a PIRATE!
As a Physical Education instructor, my teaching philosophy is to teach students the basic foundation of motor and manipulative skills, as well as an understanding of the importance of physical fitness. I will instill in my students with confidence and higher levels of self-esteem. Students will be provided with the skills necessary to make decisions about physical activity for their own personal health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and social interaction. I strive to promote teamwork, sportsmanship and social skills through physical activity. Additionally, I will provide a positive learning environment that meets the needs and abilities of students and encourages them to maintain a healthy physically active lifestyle.
