Opera-Matic is singing praises for Eva Calderon and we invite you to join us!  Referred to by many as "the mother of us all",  Eve Calderon (1946 - 2012) transformed relationships between parents, teachers and students at Mozart Elementary School.  She began her work as a parent volunteer in 1975, acting as a helpful support to make the school a more welcoming place for parents.  In 1987, Eva was more formerly recognized for her remarkable abilities and hired as the School Community Liaison.    When the  Logan Square Neighborhood Association  expanded the Parent Mentor Program in Mozart Elementary in 1997, Eva became the model parent leader.  In 2001 she founded the Mozart Parents Lending Library, providing parents with opportunities to build great things together through reading, sharing, and friendship.

Have a special memory about Eva that you would like to share?   We invite you to contribute to our online lending library, where we share stories about how Eva has shaped lives, histories, and communities in remarkable ways.   Your response may even be featured in the Community Heroes page on our website!
