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 $275,000 in the 2016-17 school year, including:

  • A district-wide group or educators are investigating how to create maker spaces, where students can engage in hands-on creative projects in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art, and math.
  • School leaders, including interim and new principals, are receiving mentoring and training, as well as support for building a new District leadership team.

With your help, we hope to fund even more in the 2017-18 school year.

Please 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 to the BEF in their name. We will notify the teacher/s you designate.  We know they will be honored by your special recognition.
