ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A new digital teacher recruitment initiative was launched by the New York State Education Department and TEACH. will offer prospective teachers an opportunity to explore the profession, access free resources, get straightforward information, and receive support in applying to educator programs statewide.
