Honor A Teacher

Let the teachers, principals, coaches, aides, or other adults in your child’s life know how much you appreciate their hard work and their passion for teaching by giving a gift in their name. We will notify the teacher/s you designate (but not disclose the amount). We know they will be honored by your special recognition!

Why Honor a Teacher?

"The BEF’s support of teachers is one of the strongest declarations that teachers are truly valued in the Brookline Public Schools. I am honored to be a member of this fine community." - 7/8 Language Arts teacher

Passionate, knowledgeable, skillful teachers help all students achieve their full potential. Thanks to donors like you, the BEF was able to fund programs and grants totaling more than $300,000 for the 2019-20 school year, including:

  • Supporting a 7/8th grade science teacher to the Arctic to study how glacier systems respond to climate change.
  • Sending all district Math educators, across all grade levels, to attend the national math conference in Boston this year.
  • Providing a cross-section of BHS educators time to collaborate on how to implement more project-based learning into their lesson plans.

Thank you!
