Vallejo High School biology teacher Vivet Beckford-Nelson knows a ton about living organisms divided into many specialized fields. On Monday she was glad to see a lot of organisms back in just one place — on campus in her classroom.
“One year, one month and one week,” Beckford-Nelson said, with a laugh on Monday. “That’s how long I’ve been waiting to see my students again in person.”
Vallejo students were back in the classrooms on Monday, enjoying in-person instruction for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic hit last March. Kindergarten through sixth grade students returned to in-person instruction last week for the first time in the Vallejo City Unified School District, while this week it was students in the grades 7-12 returning to their campuses.
