HARTFORD, Conn. – In his second term, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is going a different direction with his choice of education commissioner. Instead of nominating someone with no classroom experience, the governor decided to nominate interim commissioner Dianna R. Wentzell, who has been an educator in Connecticut for 25 years.

At a press conference outside his Capitol office, Malloy said Wentzell has the right “temperament” and “demeanor” for the job.

Wentzell did not initially apply for the job. Malloy said he asked her to apply after getting to know her and her abilities.
