The Global pandemic is a great story teller. However, the stories it tells are not designed for bedtime. On the contrary, they should be our alarm clock. We saw the disparity in several areas such as health care, just to name one. Similarly, education is no exception, there are several tales that were released, verbally and non-verbally. The field of education is a constant data seeking entity, however, we got some very unusual data that only a pandemic could give. It would be overwhelming to attempt to repeat all of the COVID 19 stories in education. This paper will What creatively acknowledge the stories the COVID 19 pandemic told to us about English Language Learners. This will give us an insight to create problem solving strategies as well as what our education forecast may look like.
