Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Ginnie Huntley
Ms. Huntley is very excited to be a part of the Hilburn Academy nest! She was born and raised in Raleigh and graduated from UNC-G with a degree in elementary education with a minor in dance. After graduation, she was selected as a Teach for American Corp member and began her teaching career in Charleston, SC, teaching 3rd and 4th grade. As a classroom teacher, she prioritized building relationships with students and families to help students find joy and success in school. Eventually, she was called home to be closer to family and began teaching in Wake County. During her time in the classroom, she discovered her passion for instructional leadership, personalized learning, and teacher development. This led her to pursue her Master's in School Administration at UNC (Go Heels!). As an educator in Wake County, she has worked at Rogers Lane Elementary, Hunter GT/AIG Magnet Elementary, Oberlin Magnet Middle School, and Davis Drive Middle School. She is thrilled to be a Hilburn Hawk and to partner with this amazing community. She can't wait to see all the amazing things that happen #onthehill!
