About Jorge Ruiz-Mesa
Hi, I am Jorge Ruiz-Mesa
I lead a team of dynamic educators at Beaulieu College in Kyalami, South Africa. I’m obsessed with education and the integration of technology therein. Since becoming acquainted with the Google Workspace for Education back in 2014, I have come to love the value it offers to both teachers and students.
Google tools inspire creativity and offer endless possibilities to both pupils and educators. From the ease of access, collaboration and integration to the use of add ons, every tool opens a world of possibilities. I believe that teachers and pupils need to be empowered to harness the ability to create content and teach skills in a way that is truly dynamic. It is my mission to pass on my knowledge and experiences in order to empower those around me.
I am a Certified Educator level one and two and in the process of acquiring the Google Certified Trainer Certificate. I am able to pass on my knowledge and expertise in both English and Spanish. I hold a Masters degree in Education specializing in Mathematics.
Although I am conversant with most of the Google tools, I have a particular passion for Google sheets. As a Mathematics teacher, Google Sheets have allowed me the freedom to collect, process and present data in a way I never thought possible. I am always eager to learn and to pass on knowledge that allows people to see the world of education in a whole new light.
