Certified Teachers in Mississippi

Mississippi 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 Mississippi, 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 Mississippi.

Teacher shortage in Mississippi

Mississippi Today reports, “The Mississippi Department of Education estimates that 54 districts within the state are experiencing ‘critical’ shortages in special education, STEM, elementary education, and foreign language fields, with over 2,000 unfilled positions across the state. However, Mississippi's inability to calculate the exact number of teacher vacancies through compiling data serves as a scapegoat for legislators to ignore the problem of inequitable education. In turn, the education gap is widened as students in low-income areas like the Mississippi Delta are supplemented with uncertified teachers or long-term substitutes.”

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.
