Regarding María Luisa Medina de Montes Collantes. María Luisa Medina de Montes Collantes was named to her first term as director of the ENEQ (Normal School of Querétaro State) by Governor Juventino Castro in 1967. Prior to becoming a director, she taught the subjects of paedology, psychology and school organization. She also raised the theatrical arts of Querétaro to the national level, in which the actors were Normal students. In 1973 she was ratified for a second term by Governor Antonio Calzada Urquiza. During this period she opened the Open Normal School and founded the San Juan del Río Normal School. She had the great satisfaction of bequeathing to future generations the new San Mateo Normal building in the Vista Alegre neighborhood, where today can be found the Querétaro Normal School.
