About Ms. Hynes

  • Hi.  I’m Kelly Hynes.  I am a recent transplant to Delaware.  My family and I moved from New York City in August.  My oldest daughter is playing volleyball at Cape Henlopen HS; my second daughter is in 8th grade at Beacon playing basketball this year, and then I have twin 2-year-olds who keep us on our toes.  In New York, I taught 4th and 5th grades for 16 years.  My last two years I taught Social Studies exclusively to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.  It was such an amazing experience that helped me develop my craft of teaching on so many levels.  5th grade has always been my favorite grade to teach.  I just enjoy the kid’s personalities and enthusiasm at this age.  I place a strong emphasis on learning through experience.  I try to make my classes very interactive and hands-on in order to give the students an opportunity to apply the knowledge gathered through text.  I am looking forward to a fabulous year at THE CREEK!
