Certified Teachers in California

California educators looking to teach online can teach in our partner schools across the country over livestreamed video. If you have a standard or professional license in California, Proximity Learning can support you through the license reciprocity process to work in states where this is required.

Teaching online gives teachers flexibility in their careers, better work/life balance, and the ability to pursue other passions.

Proximity Learning teachers are not only certified, background checked, and experienced, but they're also dynamic, engaging, and caring. Learn more about our online teaching jobs in California.

Teacher shortage in California

To combat the teacher shortage, California passed a resolution to accept teachers on provisional licences. This means teachers hired through this program are not fully licensed in the state. “Between 2012 and 2019 the number of teachers in the state working with ‘substandard’ credentials increased from 4,724 to 13,912,” according to data from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. With almost 14,000 teachers without licenses, students are not getting the expert teachers they deserve.

In April 2021, Frontline Education surveyed 1,200 district leaders to discover that two out of three respondents reported having teacher shortages in their schools. This is a record high since launching the survey in 2015.
