Abstract: COVID-19 has caused many roadblocks since our country shut down in March 2019. Most K-12 and post-postsecondary educators were forced to rethink current instructional strategies in order to finalize the 2019-2020 academic year. Additionally, pre-service elementary education teachers needed to complete K-12 field experience hours for graduation. Educators were forced to communicate and collaborate in non-traditional ways and more often than ever before. Lessons learned during these unprecedented times have been difficult to overcome for all stakeholders of education; however, there have been positive outcomes that might redirect future instruction in all grade levels.
