The Proximity Difference

Live, Synchronous Instruction
We livestream our certified virtual teachers right into your district classroom. Your dedicated team works with your district to fit with your school’s bell schedule and other needs.
Built by Educators for Educators
Our partnership directors are past superintendents, principals and teachers who understand the harm that long-term vacancies can have on students.
Certified Teachers in New Mexico

New Mexico 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 New Mexico, Proximity Learning can support you through the license reciprocity process to work in states where this is required.

Virtual teaching has allowed teachers to continue their passion for teaching, make a difference in student lives or pursue other interests.

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 New Mexico.

Teacher Shortage in New Mexico

New Mexico teacher vacancies are increasing. Unfilled positions have nearly doubled within the last year. According to research from New Mexico State University, “Initial analysis suggests New Mexico had more than 1,000 openings this fall, up from 570 last year.” Critical need areas include Elementary and Special Education. Students are not receiving educational instruction from qualified teachers. 

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.
