Join us on October 4th, at 6pm to hear from our thoughtful 2019 Metzger Fellows: Mireille Blau, Coolidge Corner School; Paul Epstein, Brookline High School; Rebecca Hayden, Brookline High School; Evan Mousseau, Brookline High School; Lauren Ockene, Pierce School; Emily Stewart, Districtwide Music; and Meghan Walsh, Runkle School.
Margaret Metzger (1945-2013) taught English at Brookline High School for over forty years, influencing thousands of students and educators through her teaching, writing, and mentoring. She was a 2005 recipient of the BEF’s Ernest R. Caverly Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Margaret’s impact on education continues to be enormous. In honor of her life and achievements, the BEF has established the Margaret Metzger Fellowship Fund to support a fellowship grant program for at least 3 to 5 years.
The Margaret Metzger Fellowship will create grants to support the continuation of Margaret’s work: thinking about the classroom, writing about teaching, and furthering the art of educating young people. In this time of frequent testing, Margaret’s belief in education as transformative and rigorous is more important than ever.
Please let us know if you’re coming!
