      This is my 22nd year teaching in Rutherford County. I began my career at Rockvale Elementary teaching 7th grade Science and Geography. While at Rockvale I coached wrestling, baseball and golf. Several years later I moved to McFadden School of Excellence where I taught 7th and 8th grade science and coached soccer. McFadden is the school where Rutherford County's first and most successful robotics team was started. We participated in BEST Robotics and quickly became a team known across the southeast for our innovation and design while winning local, regional, and national contests. I now teach high school engineering at CMS and have been doing so for the past 6 years. With teaching at CMS, we have continued our strong robotics program and have now moved to FIRST Robotics, the top tier program in the world. I enjoy teaching at the number one school in Tennessee and look forward to bringing more challenges to the students of Central Magnet. If you should need to contact me for any reason, please feel free to do so at guthriem@rcschools.net

        In my class, I encourage students to look at the problems presented to them and make their solutions/decisions based on what they can interpret from the information given. Students are challenged to look beyond the classroom doors, the conventional answers and methods, and investigate the solutions from all perspectives. I look at this class as an extraordinary opportunity to discuss the future, it's opportunities, and look for a better understanding of the world around us. Students are expected to do their best while maintaining a professional atmosphere that encourages learning. This class is 90% project based and students are expected to participate in all activities. Opinions and new ideas are welcomed and appreciated. As we go through the year, it is my goal that students will leave my class prepared to solve the problems of today as well as tomorrow.
