A group of six Brookline educators chosen as this year’s Margaret Metzger Fellows took to a stage at the Lincoln School on Friday night to share a wide range of personal and professional experiences from their classrooms and counseling offices.

The annual fellowship is organized by the Brookline Education Foundation and the family of Margaret Metzger, who died in 2013 after a 40-year career teaching English at Brookline High School, where she was known for mentoring her fellow teachers. The fellowship gives educators a chance to write essays about their personal experiences in the Brookline school system. The six who are chosen spend time over the summer working individually and in group workshops, and are given a $1,000 stipend. They read their essays to a live audience at Friday’s event.
