OPEN TO Teachers, Paraprofessionals, School Psychologists, School Social Workers, Librarians, and other student-facing specialists in the Brookline Public Schools
2021 MARGARET METZGER FELLOWSHIP
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Brookline Education Foundation is thrilled to announce that it is bringing back the Margaret Metzger Fellowship for 2021.
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 Chair & teacher, 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 (virtually, this year) 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.
If you have an interest in writing about teaching, we strongly encourage you to APPLY HERE.
Applications Due: March 1 at 5 pm. Send to Elizabeth_ascoli@brooklineeducation.org
Workshop dates are July 12-16, approx. 9 am – Noon each day, over Zoom. You must be available on these mornings to be selected.
