Eagle Hill honors departing faculty

In recognition of their exemplary level of dedication and commitment, Eagle Hill School honored two of its retiring faculty in June. Maureen Dumser and Gerry Monahan with the school’s first Distinguished Educator awards for their service.

Ms. Monahan began with Eagle Hill in 1977, just two years after the school was founded.

According to a school press release, she was “dedicated, knowledgeable, creative and professional” and was called “the rock upon which much of the Lower School has been built.”

From producing the annual talent show, to managing special community service projects, or serving as a wonderful advisor and advocate, school officials said Ms. Monahan was dedicated to providing every student at Eagle Hill with a chance to shine.

Fellow teachers said they valued her support and advice and were amazed by her commitment to life-long learning.

A master of multisensory, interactive, hands-on instruction for students and teachers, her colleagues said it was a “pleasure to watch Ms. Dumser teach.” adding that “no one could make instruction come alive quite the way that she did.”

Her colleagues said that it was obvious how Ms. Dumser always thinks deeply about children and what works for each one by how she developed creative solutions to their problems. She was called “selfless and caring” and her colleagues further declared that, “Maureen’s heart and soul were always devoted to her work with children, both at Eagle Hill for 20 years, and in the many community service organizations she joined.”
