Inducted 2003

In recognition of 34 years of teaching and the "unconditional positive regard" that she shared with all children, Eunice Faith Silva Montoya is hereby named to the WNMU Education Hall of Fame.

One of Mrs. Montoya's students once wrote, "you choose, and then you get what happens" Eunice Montoya chose to teach. She did it long, did it well and with all her being. Colleagues confirm that Mrs. Montoya's most outstanding teaching characteristic was her ability to reach each child at their level. Mrs. Montoya flitted around room 12 at Bayard Elementary with a perpetual and genuine smile waving her arms and conducting. She was always happy to be there and corrected children in a manner that only improved their work and never caused them to feel bad about themselves. Teaching children was the special gift of Eunice's life.
