Mark Huegelmann

Happy Hands Motor Teacher

Since 2013


Mr. H (Huegelmann) is the cool “Grandpa” who loves to get silly with our students.  Prior to joining us, he taught Language Arts for 33 years in Orland Park schools.  Enjoying the recent career change, he finds preschoolers a pleasure to teach and appreciates their boundless energy and amazing personalities!  Motor skills are an important part of the Happy Hands curriculum; Mr. H works on cooperation and sharing, playing games, and listening skills with the students.  A long-time Lemont resident, Mr. H is a member of the Lemont United Methodist Church, and has been a Boy Scout leader for over five years.  The youngest three of his five children attended Happy Hands.

“Exercise is a part of the skills the students will take with them and use throughout their lives. As the kids develop, it boosts their self esteem… the best part is we have FUN!”
