Radek Janik : Wellness Department Head, Dorm Parent
Radek Janik

Mr Janik was born and raised in Czech Republic (formerly) Czechoslovakia. About two years before the Velvet Revolution in 1989, Mr. Janik’s parents escaped the Communist regime along with him and his younger brother. Leaving everything and his older brother behind, Mr. Janik’s family started a new life in Connecticut. After attending and graduating from high school, Mr. Janik earned his degree from the University of Maine at Farmington. His first three years of teaching Health were at MSAD #40 (A.D. Gray and D.R. Gaul Middle Schools) in Waldoboro and Union. Trying to expand his horizons and expertise in teaching the secondary grade levels, he then decided to move on and ended up the following three years teaching Wellness at Lincoln/Sudbury Regional High School in Sudbury, Massachusetts. After that he and his wife wanted to start and raise a family and decided to move back to Maine. Loving the the Midcoast area, Mr. Janik added two more years teaching back at MSAD#40. Since then, Mr. Janik has been part of Lincoln Academy since 2006. Currently, as the Wellness Department Head, Wellness Instructor and a dorm parent, Mr. Janik continues to support student’s lives by encouraging them to make healthy and responsible choices, so they may lead better lives and become productive members of our community. Mr. Janik, his wife and children live on campus. They spend their free time traveling, enjoying the outdoors, fishing and playing games. Mr. Janik’s desire is to travel the beautiful USA and of course, take his family to visit Europe, so they get to learn and experience the different cultures and history of Czech Republic and other countries.
