TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - As new cases of the COVID-19 start to drop, some southern Arizona teachers say it could be some time before kids are where they should be academically.

One public school teacher, who we aren’t identifying to better get a look inside the classroom, says the pandemic has impacted students at home and in the classroom.

“It’s changed everything,” she said.

Complicating things, politics over masks and vaccines, and constant switching from virtual to in-person learning.

“Some of them, especially the younger ones, they didn’t have that pre-pandemic feeling of being at school, so this is for them this is kind of the norm:, she said. “But the older ones that did and were here before the pandemic and then now it’s been really difficult on them as well.”
