Ms. Julie Hanik
I graduated from North Central College with a BA in Physical Education in 2007. I started my teaching career in Lombard, IL while also taking on the role as Athletic Director. After teaching PE for a year in Lombard, I then transitioned to Holy Trinity School in Westmont, IL and have been there for the past 9 years. During my time of being the PE teacher, I was also the Athletic Director. While serving in those roles, i decided to attend Lewis University to obtain my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership. While enrolled in the graduate courses, I also served as the Assistant Principal at Holy Trinity.
Throughout my teaching career, I have managed pools for over 16 years during the summer months. I absolutely love being outdoors whether I am taking my dogs for a walk, swimming, or even just relaxing with family and friends! Being near a body of water is definitely an added bonus! Two years ago, I had the opportunity to open a women's clothing boutique. It has been so much fun picking out fun and comfortable clothes at affordable prices!
I am super excited about making this transition to Jane Addams. This will be my 11th year teaching PE and 2nd year at Jane Addams Middle School. I am happy to be able to be a part of this school community and look forward to the upcoming school year!
