Margaret Metzger Fellowship
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 Brookline Education Foundation (BEF)'s Ernest R. Caverly Award for Excellence in Teaching.
To honor of her life and achievements, the BEF established the Margaret Metzger Fellowship Fund to support a fellowship grant program for at least 3 to 5 years. The Margaret Metzger Fellowship creates grants to support the continuation of Margaret's work: thinking about the classroom, writing about teaching, and furthering the art of educating young people. Each summer the year’s fellows work with BHS English teacher John Andrews to write their story of what it means to be a teacher.
This year’s BEF Metzger Fellows Event will honor:
- Liz Exton, Lawrence Kindergarten
- Dominique Gonyer, BHS French, Latin and Spanish
- Genna Laib, Driscoll Math Specialist
- Amy Morissey, BHS English
- Jeremy Ward, Lawrence 3rd grade
