“I am proud to have partnered with Matt and SPEF over the past five years. Together, we work for the good of our students, celebrating and embracing our rich racial and economic diversity. While that diversity brings challenges, together with SPEF and a collaborative community spirit, we strive to challenge, inspire, and prepare every Stamford student for success in life.”

“I have served as a member of SPEF’s Advisory Board for the past three years, and I am a proud supporter of all of their work within the Stamford community. Having strong community partners like SPEF as a part of our local and state government is a crucial aspect to the successful continuation of our city’s great strides in parent advocacy.”


Daira and Kenia

Volunteer Mentor and Stamford High Mentee

“When I started at Stamford High I was scared and nervous about the social and academic challenges ahead.  Then, I learned about an opportunity to participate in SPEF’s mentoring program. When I met my mentor, Daira, I felt her loving personality and heartwarming vibes from the start, and my confidence grew. I am thankful for this opportunity from SPEF to have found Daira, someone I can count on and that I know cares about my academics and my social and personal wellbeing. I cannot thank her, or SPEF, enough.”
