Mrs. Misty Guthrie
Hi and welcome to my page! My name is Mrs. Misty Guthrie, and I am excited to be teaching in the STEM Lab at Tucker Creek Middle School this year! I grew up in Milton, FL, but I have lived in Havelock for about 25 years. I live with my husband, four sons with ages ranging from 8th grade to college, and one spunky Jack Russell Terrier named Spot.
I attended and graduated from East Carolina University with my teaching degree in 2007. Before I became a teacher, I obtained my degree in Business Administration from Craven Community College and worked as an office administrator and co-owned a local trade business which is still in operation today.
I decided to become a teacher because I love school and love learning. I especially have a passion for problem-based learning. In addition, I enjoy music, math, science, technology and learning things that push me out of my comfort zone. I am even learning to embrace the 2020 school year because of all the opportunities to learn as an educator. I believe we will get through this year better than ever. This is my 14th year of teaching, all of which have been in Craven County Schools. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 7th grades prior to teaching in the STEM exploratory classroom.
I encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning and ask questions when they are confused about something we are learning. I also encourage them to take risks and embrace mistakes as an important and normal part of learning.
Parents may contact me at any time through the Remind app or email with any questions or concerns. I will try to respond to all questions and concerns as soon as possible.
