"Teachers have three loves: love of learning, love of learners, and the love of bringing the first two loves together."– Scott Hayden
Vishal Chhipa is an educator and hails from the heart of Rajasthan and the 'textile city' of India- Bhilwara. He completed his senior secondary education from Bhilwara itself and then went to Jaipur for pursuing graduation. He completed his B.tech from Jaipur and then went to Bikaner Technical University, Ajmer for completing his M.tech(which is still in running). Vishal sir always wanted to be a teacher but right after his graduation he got placed in a good enough firm and worked there for more than 6 months, but he somehow couldn't convince himself to continue working there. He was not satisfied with his job role nor did he like the corporate environment.
Waking up every day to that corporate job was getting difficult for him and hence he finally decided to quit his job because he believed in "if you don't love what you do, you'll never be good at it".
He then focused on finding out the teaching opportunities and scopes for himself. He joined a school called Stech International School. But at the very start of his teaching journey, he struggled a lot to prove himself that his decision and choice were correct. Since the world and especially the education system was moving online rapidly and students loved studying online. The deadly Coronavirus also hit the world and that made him realize the importance of online presence and online teaching even more.
After teaching students of classes 6th to 12th for more than two years, Vishal sir decided to shift to online teaching as he wanted to stay updated and provide the best of education, knowledge, and experience to his students and hence his search for the best online teaching app began.
He came across Teachmint through a Facebook post and installed it immediately. His experience with the features was extraordinary. Vishal sir has been associated with Teachmint for a very long time now and here is what he has to say about the app-
A huge problem that both the students as well as the teachers face is backup classes, students do demand backup classes(revisions) from the teachers due to many reasons, such as - late admission, medical leave, the requirement of remedial classes, etc. The best part about Teachmint is that it takes care of every little issue a teacher might face, Teachmint is like a one-stop solution to every online teaching-related problem. Today I am successfully teaching 150+ students with the help of Teachmint.
All the features are par excellence but the live class recording feature has all my heart as it has made teaching effortless for me.
When asked about his message for all the teachers out there he said-
All the teachers should try to keep themselves updated with the technology, teaching strategies the methods of teaching, etc. Teachers should make sure that their students understand whatever they teach, in short, the teachers should focus on learning instead of lecturing. He believes in- ‘Your work is not to drag the world kicking and screaming into a new awareness. Your job is to simply do your work… sacredly, secretly, silently … and those with “eyes to see and ears to hear’ will respond.’ –The Arturians
