Proximity Learning Fills Teacher Vacancies for 2021-22 School Year

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS). Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year, Proximity Learning is supporting the district by providing highly qualified, state-certified virtual teachers to accelerate student learning.

As schools continue to plan to reopen for in-person instruction, districts, like PWCS, are discovering that finding quality teachers in their area is becoming increasingly difficult. To fill these gaps, Proximity Learning provides districts with trained, virtual teachers via livestream, operating since 2009 with a proven virtual teaching model.

Proximity Learning will provide teachers to the district specialized in math, English Language Arts Standards (ELA), science, social studies, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), special education, and other elective courses.

“Proximity Learning is grateful for the opportunity to make an impact on the students of Prince William County Public Schools,” said Jim Frenchak, Director of School Partnerships for Proximity Learning. “I have worked in education in Virginia for most of my career and have never seen such a need for quality educators. Prince William County’s decision to pursue virtual learning with Proximity Learning ensures that each and every student in the district will be connected to a certified teacher who will set them up for future success.”

Proximity Learning’s method of synchronous, virtual teaching allows students to experience and interact with their teacher in a way that emulates the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom experience, creating an ideal environment for students to connect with their teachers, absorb content, and build a foundation for their future.
