Andreanna Yanez-Vierra is teaching first grade at Hoover Elementary School in Burlingame this fall. Ralph Bedwell is teaching English at Pinole Valley High School.

Bay Area teachers have been preparing to teach in-person again.

Guests: Andreanna Yanez-Vierra, 1st grade teacher at Hoover Elementary School in Burlingame; Ralph Bedwell, English teacher at Pinole Valley High
