Donovan Fountain is a 2021-2022 Teach Plus Colorado Policy Fellow. Donovan is a kindergarten English literacy teacher at Global Village Academy Aurora, an immersion school. So he teaches English literacy for 20% of a kindergartener’s school day while they spend the rest of the time learning core content in Mandarin, French, or Spanish. Donovan was inspired to teach by an incredibly capable history teacher during his time at Denver School of the Arts where he graduated high school. He graduated from the University of Northern Colorado’s Center for Urban Education where he majored in Elementary Education and earned a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education endorsement.
