Mariu Comer Receives Prestigious Award

Mariu Comer Mariu Comer, a fifth grade Mathematics teacher at School 24, was awarded the New Jersey Department of Education’s Exemplary Educator Award. When she is not molding the growing minds of her math students, Ms. Comer may be found in many areas of the school lending a helping hand. A member of the School 24’s Intervention and Referral Study Team, Mrs. Comer goes above her required classroom duties by observing and evaluating student needs, reaching out to parents and teachers for support, and helping students get the services they need to be successful. Her peers call her hardworking, determined and organized, while her students call her helpful and a role model.

Ms. Comer, who has completed two Master’s degrees, is continuing her education by pursuing her supervisor certification at William Paterson University. Principal Cotto said, “School 24 is proud to have such an exemplary teacher and role model on our staff. I know that Mrs. Comer will continue her greatness in the future.”
