As Stamford teachers get ready for a new school year, Superintendent Dr. Winnie Hamilton wants them to take it on with grit.
“Believe that smart is not something you just are, smart is something you can get, and that grit can be the driver that will keep us all focused on the climb ahead.” Hamilton said.
The city held its annual staff convocation at Westhill High School Wednesday. Hamilton spoke about how grit is a factor of success, citing student's state test scores.
Stamford's first day of classes is August 26. Visit stamfordpublicschools.org for more first day of school info.
