Assistant Principal

My name is Suzanna Maddox and this is my seventh year as Assistant Principal and 16th year in education. I taught middle school at Byhalia Middle School for three years, and have spent the last 13 years in Horn Lake-six teaching at Horn Lake High School, six as Assistant Principal at Shadow Oaks Elementary, and one as Assistant Principal at Horn Lake Intermediate. 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 a 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 has grown to more than 500 and has spread internationally. 

My husband and I have been married for 21 years and have 2 daughters. Shelby will be a freshman at Hannibal-LaGrange University, where she will be playing basketball. Samantha is in the 8th grade and plays 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 Southaven Elementary and look forward to being a Charger.
