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
