In my opinion, Thinkfinity is the best website available for providing a variety of resources for teachers. In addition to this incredible site, I wonder what other websites and/or apps you would recommend to fellow educators.
With 2012 coming to a close, many websites and apps now cater to education. I'm sure you are using some of these to teach your students digitally. David Kapuler has written his annual blog post featuring his picks of the Top 100 Sites & Apps of 2012 (Tech & Learning November 2012).
