YUMA, Ariz. ( KYMA, KECY) - Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced this week that all state-wide school could resume this upcoming fall amid the pandemic.

One local teacher at Alice Byrne Elementary in Yuma says that as an educator, she feels thrilled that classes will resume. However, there is still a lot of questions in the air as to how things will get done.

The teacher tells News 11 that about 10 percent of her students fell behind in class, not turning in work for the nine-weeks of being quarantined.

But coming back to school she says teachers will do anything for their students to get back on track.
