It's back to school for Northeast Elementary in Stamford, and it's not only students & parents who are enthusiastic about the first day.
"I'm probably as excited as the children are," said Hubert Gordon, who is the new principal of the school.
Gordon comes to Northeast after former principal Connie Stevenson retired.
"I've had a lot of different experiences," said Gordon. "I'm really excited to bring those experiences to Northeast."
Gordon worked in NYC public schools. Then, most recently before Northeast, he was an elementary principal in Ethiopia.
There, he worked with American students and other children from around the globe.
This morning, Gordon greeted parents and students who are ready for a new year at Northeast.
