The Brookline Education Foundation’s annual event in May, “Celebrating Teachers,” is a special opportunity to celebrate the talent, enthusiasm, and dedication that Brookline’s educators bring to our schools each day. This year, the Celebrating Teachers event was held at Brookline High School on May 9th. All educators who have been awarded a grant in the past year were recognized. Recipients of teacher, collaborative, and systemwide grants, Margaret Metzger fellowships, as well as the Adam Russell Gelfand Fellowship, the David E. Pradell Award, and the Charlie Baker Legacy Award, were also announced. The highlight of the event was the introduction of the Caverly Award recipients, Sara O’Shea of the Heath School and Liz Crane of Brookline High School. It is always a wonderful event and a great opportunity to show our appreciation for our inspiring and dedicated teachers!
