Getting to Know Our 3rd Grade Team!

Hi!  My name is Laura Lutz.  This is my 12th year teaching at New Holland Elementary School, and my second year teaching 3rd grade.  I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Millersville University and a master’s degree in Early Literacy from Wilkes University.  I have been married for 9 years and have a 5-year-old daughter named Abigail, a 3-year-old daughter named Hannah, and a 13-year-old cat named Dusty.  In my free time I enjoy swimming, reading, going to the park, watching the Flyers, and spending time with family and friends.


Hi, my name is Chelsea Spence. I’ve been teaching at New Holland elementary for the past four years. I taught fourth grade for the first two years, then moved to third. Each year I have been fortunate enough to have a group of amazing, hard-working students. I received my Bachelors of Education from Millersville University and am nearing the end of my Master’s program of technology and innovation. I love to travel and was fortunate enough to spend this past Christmas in France. This coming summer I plan to travel to Italy and Croatia. I also enjoy being curled up with a good book and spending time outdoors hiking and kayaking.


My name is Kelly Williams. This is my second year at NHES, but my 13th year teaching. I moved from Georgia in May of 2015. My husband took a job with Hershey Entertainment. We have two children, Aiden who is 6 years old and Aubrey who is 9 months old. I love teaching at NHES with my 3rd grade team!



Tiffany Williard – I grew up in the tiny, well-known town of Hershey, PA and attended Bloomsburg University for my undergraduate degree. I began my teaching career in 2005 as a 2nd grade teacher right here at New Holland Elementary! In 2008, I received my graduate degree from Wilkes University. I was married in 2010 and now reside in Lititz, PA with my husband, two daughters, Abby (5) and Lucy (2) and our dog, Judson. I currently teach 3rd grade alongside some of the best teachers I know! Aside from teaching our wonderful NH students, I enjoy reading and baking but my favorite thing to do is go to Bethany Beach, DE!
