Katydids Teachers

Maddie Messner: Lead Teacher, Assistant Group Supervisor

Maddie went to Garden Spot High School and County Technology Center for childcare, and is currently going for her Associate's in Early Childhood Education. Her mom, Tracy, works in the Grasshoppers classroom. She has 1 older brother and 1 younger brother. Maddie's favorite thing about working with children is watching them learn and grow!


Lauren Reynolds: Assistant Group Supervisor

Lauren was born and raised in New Holland and lives in Lancaster. She has worked for NHELC for 5 years and has returned to work again for the past 6 months. Lauren also worked for New Holland and Brecknock Elementary in their Special Education Program. When she is not working, she enjoys finding hidden gems in the city she lives in with her friends, writing, cooking (or at least attempting to), and hanging out with her cats, Michi and Bean. She feels that she has grown and learned so much working here. Lauren loves seeing the kids do the same; she thinks it so much fun to see each personality shine differently.
