Who is María Isabel Dones?

Maria’s vocation was teaching, although her upbringing was filled with limitations, she became wealthy in spirit. Her character, stamina, patience, and her love for teaching and sharing her knowledge were her most valuable treasures. Maria was the recipient of various recognitions during her fruitful career and even after her death she was still honored. But the recognition which really mattered to her was the one she received from her students.

The respect they showed her, and having been able to instill enjoyment for mathematics and for life itself, was her greatest accomplishment.

There are those who go through life without leaving any kind of trace and then, there are others who make a difference in our lives at a given time. María Isabel Dones belongs to the latter ones, and this is a simple homage to her life.
