New York State Education Department has many resources to support teachers in the classroom. The problem that I have always had was trying to find them on the site. Although it is a New York site the following links can be used for Remote Teaching in all schools. These resources are also helpful for student teachers who are tackling the world of student teaching that may include a variation of remote teaching. Check out the sites below.
