When circumstances change in the blink of an eye, educators are accustomed to monitoring and adjusting to do whatever it takes to help students be successful. Little did we know that the requisite skills of being nimble, flexible problem solvers would be stretched to the limit as educators around the world addressed the massive educational changes that occurred in response to the global pandemic. Through their commitment to following best practices in educator preparation and ongoing collaboration with many stake holders, the West Texas A & M University’s (WTAMU’s) Educator Preparation Program (EPP) faced the challenges of the COVID-19 quarantine while supporting 90 clinical teachers in completing their vital clinical teaching experience. This included making an overnight shift from “actual” face-to-face teaching to delivering lessons in new “authentic” virtual learning environments.
