Jessica LeDoux is a Special Education Teacher at both Columbia Virtual Academy and Paideia High School. She has been married for over 20 years and has three beautiful, funky, and kind children and one amazing grandchild. As far as her educational background, Jessica started her post-secondary education at Spokane Community College in the early 90’s where she earned her Associate of Arts Degree before transferring to Gonzaga University. She graduated from Gonzaga with a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature in 1997. From there, Jessica entered the workforce, but she knew her career in academia was not over. Jessica re-enrolled at Gonzaga, this time in the School of Education where she earned her secondary teaching certification in 2001. As soon as she graduated, she had a fantastic job opportunity within the Catholic Diocese of Spokane as an eighth-grade teacher. As much as Jessica enjoyed that experience, she knew she wanted to go back to school and get her Master’s degree in Special Education, which she did, once again at Gonzaga. This degree enabled her to be hired by Spokane Public Schools where Jessica worked at John R. Rogers High School for the last 12 years. During that time, Jessica was a behavior intervention teacher as well as a resource teacher, and she co-taught in several general education classes. When the chance to work in a small district near her home became available, Jessica jumped at the chance and here she is today! Jessica will be on-site at Paideia HS Wednesdays and Fridays and is very much looking forward to supporting ALL Paideia students in their pursuit of being the very best version of themselves!
