Ms. Courtne Comrie

One of the more satisfying parts of working in the field of education is witnessing students realize their potential. Often times the road reaching that potential can be long and arduous requiring resilience and courage.

It was with great delight (and pride) to receive recently a copy of a writing workshop anthology one of our Lehman College graduates was included in. Ms. Courtne Comrie, our stellar NYC Men Teach scholar ambassador, graduated Spring 2019 with her B.A. in English (Creative writing) and is starting her first year as a Department of Education teacher.Ms. Comrie is a writer who has had work published in The New York Times and is now a contributor to DREAMing Out Loud: Voices of Undocumented Students. These heartfelt narratives personify the intestinal fortitude, hope and courage many of our CUNY students have to call on to meet not only their educational goals but life goals
