All About Mrs. Doud
Hello! I am Mrs. Jaime Doud and I am the 8th grade homeroom teacher here at St. Anne. This is my second year at St. Anne but my twentieth year teaching, all in junior high! I grew up in Catholic schools right here in the Chicagoand area. I began my education at Rosay College (now Dominican University) for preschool and then continued at St. James the Greater Elementary school. After graduating I attended Mother Theodore Guerin High School for Girls in River Grove. Ultimately, I received two Bachelors of Arts degrees in Secondary Education and English in conjunction with endorsements in Middle School Education, Social Studies, and Theater/Drama from Northeastern Illinois University. During my time at Northeastern, I was an active member of thier Stage Center Theater, a Theater Board Member, and a student director, as well as a Talent Scholarship recipient and on the Dean's List for the English Department.
I began my teaching career student teaching Theater at Taft High School and English at Amundson High School in Chicago. From there I began my first official year teaching at Our Lady of Destiny School in Des Plaines where I remained for 14 years until its closure in 2015. I then spent 4 years in the Joliet Diocese teaching 7th and 8th grade ELA at St. Petronille School in Glen Ellyn.
I met my husband of 17 years, Adam, while at Northeastern. We currently reside in Streamwood with our two children, Kaitlyn (4th grade) and Kyle (8th grade) and our two dogs Penny and Sandy. I am a member of St. John the Evangelist Church in Streamwood and a Gym Mom at Gymkhana Gymnastics in Hanover Park where my daughter is a competative artistic gymnast. When not at school or the gym, you can find me curled up with a good book, crocheting, or playing cards with good friends.
