About Ms. Thompson

About: Hi, I am Malea Thompson and I feel so privileged to be a Kindergarten teacher here at Hilburn Academy. I began my teaching career in 1991-1999 for Durham Public School as a Reading Specialist, working with students K-8. Then became a stay at home mom for my 3 outgoing children, two who are now in college attending ECU and NCSU and the oldest starting out in her new adventures in life. Returning to the workforce I began subbing for Hilburn, which has lead me into my 4th year teaching Kindergarten at Hilburn. I love teaching Kindergarten as they are full of so much curiosity and energy.
