...FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
Hi! My name is Julie Messina. My husband, Pasquale, and I live in Winfield, and we have two daughters. I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I have coached volleyball and softball in the past and love watching my niece play travel softball.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education in 2000 from Elmhurst University. I started my teaching career at Immanuel Lutheran School in 2005 and taught various grades throughout my tenure, from preschool through eighth grade, spending most of my time in seventh and eighth grade. I was always ready for a new challenge. I spent one year at Holy Ghost Catholic School before heading to Trinity Lutheran School in Lombard. I have served as their principal and seventh and eighth-grade teacher for the last five years. I have earned two Master's Degrees from Concordia University; Curriculum and Instruction with an EL Endorsement in 2017 and the Illinois Principal Preparation Program in 2022.
I am excited about being part of the St. Peter’s family!
