About Mr. Jigar Mehta

Namaste! My name is Jigar Mehta.I am a teacher. Teaching is my profession but it is more than that, of course. It is also my great life long love and fascination. I graduated from Gujarat University (India) with major in Mathematics and later did my degree in Education from the same university. Apart from teaching at various grade levels (Grades 5-6 at ICSE, Grades 7-12 at CIE), I also had the opportunity of leading and mentoring teachers at elementary school level.I love integrating technology in my classroom with web 2.0 tools. I have developed a knack of using Interactive Boards (Smart Interactive White Boards, Smart Slate), Educational Social Networking Websites (edmodo, mybigcampus), Video Tutorials (Channel mathmantra@youtube.com), blogs, web portals (mathmantra.weebly.com), Mathematical Softwares (GeoGebra, Latex, Graphmatica), Power School, etc. While I am not in the classroom, working with numbers, I enjoy reading inspirational books, listening to qawalli or go for long walks with my wife.My Work Profile:I am currently working at Nogales High School - Nogales Unified School District #1. Previous stations include:Pierson High School - Nogales Unified School District #1, Nogales, AZ (USA)The Galaxy Education System, Rajkot (India) and White House Public School, Bhuj (India).My Inspiration:I am inspired by Swami Vivekanand. Swamiji's words and work has always guided me in whatever I do. I believe he was the greatest teacher of his time and has made an eternal impact on the fate of humanity. His vision and ideals will inspire generations to come. His call. "Arise. Awake and Stop not till the desired end is reached" never fails to inspire me. May we all succeed in making this world a better place to live in!
