Mrs. Fehling Welcome Message


Hi Hilburn Hawks and families!
    I am thrilled to be here at Hilburn Academy, helping to build a nest that will raise these incredible hawks!  I have been in education since 2001 and in Wake County since 2010.  My pathway has led me to many classrooms from Kindergarten through college and even some adult education courses.  I have taught in New York, Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Taiwan!  My most recent assignment was as an assistant principal of instruction (API) at Leesville Road High School.  I was there from 2016-2022.  This time has allowed me to be well-versed on what my Hilburn Hawks will need to be well prepared for their next step after leaving here.  I am excited to bring this knowledge and expertise to Hilburn.
    On a personal note, I am married to another WCPSS employee.  My husband is a teacher at SCORE Academy.  We have four lively and vivacious children, three of whom are old enough to be Hilburn Hawks.  We are excited to be a part of this school community and invest our time and energy into Hilburn.  Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you to enhance your child's educational experience here at Hilburn.
