The current education system is plagued with the problem of teachers' shortage in many parts of the world. Classrooms are left vacant without a qualified educator, class sizes increase, and instructional effectiveness declines. This issue, coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, has made it more challenging for schools to provide quality education to students. 

However, Proximity Learning (PLI) has offered hope by providing high-quality education to students in schools that struggle to fill teacher vacancies. PLI's model is an essential pillar of educational equity, and it's an excellent opportunity for teachers of all levels to bring their best to students who need them most. Read on to learn more about the benefits of teaching jobs from home. 

Flexibility and Convenience for Teachers

Proximity Learning offers freedom and flexibility to teachers. Teachers who join PLI don't have to worry about extra duties such as hall monitoring or covering extra classes. PLI takes care of all non-teaching activities, allowing teachers to concentrate solely on teaching. Moreover, PLI provides teachers with high-quality instructional materials, tech tools, and curriculums to deliver engaging and thought-provoking lessons. 

Also, PLI offers flexibility in scheduling. Teachers can teach either full-time or part-time, allowing them to have a better work-life balance and more free time. PLI provides convenience to teachers, allowing them to teach from the comfort of their own homes or any location they choose. This is especially beneficial for those who live in rural areas or have difficulty commuting to an institution due to distance, illness, disability, or any other reason..

A Diverse Learning Community

Proximity Learning is more than just an online teaching institution. It is a diverse learning community that offers an opportunity for teachers to connect with other teaching professionals. PLI's community of teachers share knowledge, ideas, and best practices on teaching, ultimately improving their skills, gaining exposure to different teaching methods, and expanding their professional networks.

In addition, PLI offers professional development opportunities for its community members. Professional development is available to help teachers further develop their skills and stay current with the latest trends in education.  In a typical month there are over 15 live PD sessions and if teachers are unable to attend, they are encouraged to utilize PLIs professional learning management system to access the recordings on demand, any time that is convenient.

High-Quality and Innovative Learning Experience

PLI utilizes cutting-edge technology to facilitate its online instruction. It uses digital tools that allow teachers to engage with students and provide interactive learning experiences. Moreover, PLI offers high-quality curriculums that adhere to national and state standards, ensuring that students receive the best education possible. PLI is sure to offer training programs that equip teachers with skills and knowledge essential to improve their teaching. 

PLI is committed to providing an environment that supports learning and personal growth by promoting collaboration among peers and encourages creativity. 

Why apply?

Proximity Learning offers a transformative opportunity for teachers of all experience levels to make a real impact in the lives of students who need them most. The institution's model is a pillar of educational equity, bringing high-quality education to students in underserved schools. 

Joining PLI not only helps teachers improve their teaching skills and expand their networks but also comes with flexible scheduling. Consider joining PLI and experience the joy of engaging in what you love most, which is teaching. With PLI, you can take your teaching skills to higher levels while making a difference in students' lives.
