HERMISTON The noise level in the classroom rose as more students arrived. Some students worked on their homework, while others chatted with their neighbors or asked the teachers questions before class began.
It took a few seconds for the students to settle down as their teacher cleared her throat and took her place at the head of the class.
These students should know the drill considering they were working as teachers themselves less than an hour before this class began.
Teachers from Umatilla and Morrow counties are headed back to class to improve their Spanish skills. The class is held at Sunset Elementary once a week and taught by Sunset staff members Loretta Fitterer and Becky Sterns.
