The Margaret Metzger Fellowship grants Brookline educators the opportunity to reflect on their life as educators and write an essay about those experiences. John Andrews, Brookline High School English teacher and chair of the English Department, will lead and support the six Metzger Fellows selected by the Metzger Committee. The group of Fellows work together and separately in a workshop format giving and receiving peer input. There is a wonderful culminating event in the Fall at which the essays are read by the authors.
The stipend for this project will be $1000 for each participant. Applicants should be employees of the Public Schools of Brookline who work in classrooms (including classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, specialists, administrators who also teach, etc.) and planning to return to PSBMA in the Fall. New and veteran teachers are encouraged to apply. Margaret Metzger believed strongly in encouraging all teachers, novice to expert, to reflect and share their work.
