Diane Mills
                                     Director/ Teacher
 

My name is Diane Mills. I live here in Greencastle with Tony, my husband of 18 years, and 2 children. My daughter, Julia, is in 8th grade and Carter is a 6th grader. When my kids were younger, I kept myself occupied with volunteer work. I was a Girl Scout Leader for 4 years and spent even longer on the Executive Board with the Parent Teacher Organization. Now that both of my kids are in Middle School, I have plenty of time for my new job – I absolutely love being the Director Teacher here at Guiding Hands. I also enjoy reading, being outdoors and spending time with friends and family.

 

My Professional Background
I graduated from Frostburg State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education.  I have worked many years in child care facilities as both a teacher and director.  After taking off several years to be a stay-at-home mom when my kids were little, I rejoined the work force as an instructor for Child Care courses at Hagerstown Community College, and most recently worked in the Library at Greencastle Antrim Elementary School.  Over the years, I have worked in the private sector as well, with several nanny jobs and even a part-time preschool in my home

    My name is Leslie Oberholzer. I live in Greencastle with my husband of 12 years. I have 3 children. My son Tyler is 23 years old and is a Police Officer in Prince George’s County.  Autumn is 14 and is in 8th grade. Makayla is 11 and in the 5th grade. I have worked for Guiding Hands PreSchool for almost 6 years. I absolutely love assisting with the children.  It has brought me so much joy.  I also love going to Yard Sales in the summer, being involved in ministries at my church and spending time with my family.

I graduated from Greencastle Antrim High School and attended Franklin County Area Vocational School where I received my cosmetology license.  I worked at Citi Bank for 16 years.  After my last child was born I had the privilege of being a stay at home mom for 6 years.
