Ms. Fountain

HELLO Parents,

My name is Ms. Fountain. I am excited to be the school counselor and art teacher for McDowell students. I want to take some time to introduce myself to you. I have been teacher for Chicago Public Schools for 36 years (no doubt I may have taught some of you.) In my spare time I like to draw, paint, read and sew or visit to new places.

I was born and raised in Chicago where attended McCosh and Stagg elementary schools. I attended Calumet High School for my secondary education. I received a Bachelor of Arts from Bradley University. Later I obtained a Master in Library and Information Science, as well as a Master in School Counseling from Chicago State University. I enjoy teaching and seeing young people grow as they learn.


I am most proud of being the mother of two sons and the grandmother of four grandchildren. I look forward to traveling on this journey with you and your child (children) as we adapt to our new norm.

If you need to reach out to me contact me at and visit my virtual classes on the McDowell website.
