Mr. Terry Guthrie

Assistant Principal

Boulevard Heights/Transition Center

It is a pleasure to serve the students, staff and parents of both Boulevard Heights School and the Transition Center Programs. This is my 20th year in education and my 19th year with the Fort Worth ISD. I served as a high school resource teacher in Dumas ISD in Dumas, TX before relocating to the Fort Worth area in 1999. I began my career in FWISD as an elementary self-contained special education teacher at Boulevard Heights in the fall of 1999. After serving in this capacity, I was moved out of the classroom into a consulting role where I served all of FWISD consulting on behaviors, instruction, classroom structure, etc. in special education classrooms. After providing consultative services for 6 years, I became the Teacher/Coordinator for the Transition Center LIFT Program located in the Administration Building. I served in this capacity for 3 years before becoming the Assistant Principal for BHS and the TC Programs. I have been serving in this capacity since 2011. I received my BS in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Special Education from West Texas A&M University, my MEd in Educational Leadership from Texas Woman’s University, and I am currently a PhD candidate in the College of Professional Education with an emphasis in Special Education at Texas Woman’s University. I believe that every student has within them the capacity to learn, grow and develop when provided an appropriately tailored instructional learning environment.

“I believe: All Students can learn. All behavior is purposeful. Life is purposeful. Purpose is our motivating force rather than pleasure or power. Purpose is about Service and Sacrifice. I believe we are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. I believe the human spirit can be damaged, but it is not destructible. I believe a person can have a damaged childhood and not be a disturbed adult.  Love, Unconditional (Agape) Love is the most important, most influential, most powerful Breath of Purpose in the Universe.”

Secretary

Boulevard Heights has had the pleasure of having Tammy Rainey in the main office since 2007.  BHS is unlike any school in the district, so not only does Tammy carry the workload and responsibilities of any other school secretary in FWISD, she also assists by redirecting behaviors, guiding incidental learning experiences, managing radio communications, and a myriad of other responsibilities that keep people safe and procedures efficient.  Her background of stewardship shows in everything she does.
