Support that equips virtual teachers to thrive

Our teachers may be all over the country, but they're never alone. When we empower teachers to be great, students everywhere benefit.

For a teacher to grow from good to great, they need support that empowers them. This is especially true when it comes to remote teaching.

With over a decade of remote teaching under our belt, we know that teachers are only as good as the support system backing them up. In brick-and-mortar schools, it’s easy to have a quick conversation or stop by someone’s office. With remote teaching, support has to be more deliberate and more available.

A team that supports you every step of the way.

Proximity Learning teachers get support from subject department chairs, fellow teachers, in-class facilitators, and technical experts—ensuring that they’re equipped to be the experts they’re capable of being.


Building a Connected Community

Our Connected Community is a dedicated and well-directed effort that brings our entire educational community together to support each other and our mission.

The Connected Community is an ecosystem of advisory committees, social media groups, professional development opportunities, cross-team collaborations and more, all working together to set up our teachers for success while working towards our mission of increasing educational equity through synchronous virtual instruction.

In-House Technology Support

Technology is responsible for some amazing advances in the education space—that said, we know it isn’t perfect. Our in-house solutions team—staffed by technology experts who have taught for Proximity Learning in the past—is ready to help you at a moment’s notice. This way, you can focus on being a great teacher instead of being your own IT department.

Regular Office Hours

Office hours are live sessions hosted by department chairs, teaching & learning specialists, and other experts that encourage connection. Office hours provide opportunities for PLI educators from across the country to meet one another, ask questions, and share exciting teaching innovations.

Team Collaboration

We use an official Proximity Learning Facebook group for teachers to hold group discussions, share pictures, give updates, and more.

If you're not a social media person, we also utilize Google Chat to correspond and collaborate with each other.

Department Chairs

Our classrooms emulate the best parts of the brick-and-mortar teaching experience, but we don’t stop there—so do our team structures. Proximity Learning has Department Chairs for each core subject—Math, Science, ELA, Social Studies, and World Language—that hold regular office hours for teachers to ask questions about curriculum, technology, and other resources.

Our mission is to connect all learners with the expert teachers they deserve -teachers like you.
