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 York

New York 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 York, 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 York.

Teacher Shortage in New York

The New York teacher shortage has increased year over year.  News10 says, “enrollment in New York state’s teacher education programs has declined by 50.4 % since 2009.” A lack of education students turns into a lack of qualified teachers. COVID-19 has exacerbated the issue because more teachers are retiring early without eligible replacements.

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.
