How has distance learning being an experience to teachers that had been teaching students face to face before this pandemic? What are the pros and cons of teaching this way?

I cannot speak as a teacher but I am a full time college student studying elementary education. As a college student, the pros are that for the most part, I do things on my own time. The cons are that I do not get the hands on experience and the rich discussions. In my field placement, I have not heard of many teachers liking the virtual learning. Some are doing hybrid and they said it's a lot more work doing it that way and they are the most exhausted they have ever been. I think for elementary aged children, doing school in person is so important. Unfortuately, it's just not safe right now.
