Kristin Tennyson (Head of School)
Joining our program in 1997 as a teacher of Trinity School (our name at the time), Mrs. Tennyson is the most experienced member of our staff. As a graduate of Illinois State University & licensed as an Intervention Specialist and an Administrator for Non-Publics, she has worked in the management of DD programs for adults and children for 6 years before coming to LGS. “I'm passionate about creating an inclusive environment for everyone who walks through our door and finding ways to help each person recognize their strengths and grow as an individual.” It takes a lot to keep this program running, so to keep herself capable, she drinks a lot of Starbucks, so much so she thinks she should just own stock in it.
Bridget Wuebbling (Assistant Head of School)
After graduating with a B.S. Industrial Design, “ I designed a “My Little Pony'' playset that was sold in stores internationally." Ms. Wuebbling continued her education with more degrees, including an M.Ed. Multicultural Special Education & Board-Certified Behavior Analyst. She joined LGS in 2010, growing her influence, and is now the Assistant Head of School. “I love seeing kids, families and staff regain hope and realize that school can be different.” She continues to help our staff grow and recognize our strengths as our school's official certified Gallup-Strength Finder Coach.
Matt Mobilio (Director of Business Operations)
In 2006, Mr. Mobilio joined our team as a one-on-one para-educator; Mr. Mobilio was one of the first to help our school reach new technology goals. With a BS in Electronic Media and a Master's in Secondary Education, he has brought all sorts of new technology and programs (including LEGO Education, 3D printing, and other S.T.E.A.M. curricula) to help grow how we reach and teach our students. In October 2015, he was awarded Teacher of the Month for LEGO Education. “LGS provides opportunities for families, students, staff, and the community at large. We aren't concerned just for our own students but for all students.” It takes a lot of energy to be in many places, as he takes on many roles at LGS, but he takes all that energy to write, produce, perform, and record his own music and short video productions.
