Mrs. Helen Wright, Head Principal


My name is Helen Wright. I am so honored to serve as the Principal at Greenbrook Elementary.

I began my career in education as an elementary school teacher where I taught second grade for one year in Clarksdale, MS, and third grade for eleven years at Overpark Elementary. For the last four years, I served as the assistant principal at Overpark. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Delta State University and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.

In 2000, I married my wonderful husband, Jason. Our home is always a lively place thanks to our 5 amazing children: William and Jacob, Rebekah, Hannah, and Joshua. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, playing games, and solving puzzles of all kinds.

My name is Suzanna Maddox and this is my tenth year as Assistant Principal and 19th year in education. I taught at Byhalia Middle School for three years and taught English at Horn Lake High School for six years. I have been an assistant principal at Shadow Oaks Elementary, Horn Lake Intermediate, and Southaven Elementary. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Memphis and my master's degree from Arkansas State University. In 2007, I was chosen to be a Freedom Writer teacher; I was one of 150 teachers from across the United States and the only teacher from the state of Mississippi. In 2008, this group wrote a book, Teaching Hope, which was published in 2009. Today, this group of teachers and educators has grown to more than 500 and has spread internationally. 

My husband and I have been married for 22 years and have 2 daughters. Shelby will be a sophomore at Hannibal-LaGrange University, where she will be playing basketball, and Samantha will be in the 9th grade and will play volleyball and basketball. I am a member of Grace Cumberland Presbyterian Church and I also teach Elementary Sunday school and children's church. 

I am excited to be at Greenbrook Elementary and look forward every day to being a Charger.
