Our faculty and staff always welcome the support

Mr. Steven Wright, Assistant Principal
My name is Steven Wright. My last 23 years of teaching have been in Rutherford County, primarily at Walter Hill Elementary School. While there I was a classroom teacher, an interventionist, instructional leader, and the RTI Coach. I firmly believe all students can learn at high levels when given the proper instruction, pacing, and environment.
When not at school, I also work at my church as the assistant music director and I teach group fitness classes at The Wellness Center in Murfreesboro. I am also an avid runner.I look forward to meeting all of the parents, students, and staff at Elzie Patton Elementary School!
