Yes, she can deduct the internet costs for an online teacher but must first apportion the expense between personal and business use.

Not if she is a W-2 employee.   The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act eliminated ALL unreimbursed employee business expense deductions for 2018-2025.

Side note on wifi use to previous answer: 

 

If you haven't already claimed educator expenses for  the out of pocket allowed of $250 per individual then do it there.  Wish this was more for teachers - thank her from us parents. ❤️ I'd like to see this amount increased bc teachers need it.
