Certified Teachers in Hawaii

Hawaii 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 Hawaii, 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 Hawaii.

Teacher Shortage in Hawaii

Hawaii has a dire teacher shortage as it struggles to hire and retain teachers. The Hawaii State Teachers Association states, “More than 60,000 keiki are not taught by a Hawaii Qualified Teacher each year. During the 2018–19 school year, Hawaii classrooms had more than 1,000 emergency hires and long-term substitutes to cover vacancies because our teacher shortage is so severe." Hawaii Public Schools reports that 1,230 teachers left Hawaiian schools in the 2021-22 school year.

Teacher Shortage reports claim, "Based on news and state reports, we estimate that there are at least 55,000 vacant teacher positions in the United States."
