The Gem

Hello! My name is Ma. Gemma Samodal dela Cruz , a green blooded La Sallian from the city of smiles, Bacolod, Philippines. I am currently employed at LaSalTech, Inc., the first and the best Internet Service Provider in Bacolod City.

The five most important values I bring to my worklife are honesty, integrity, dedication, hardwork, and a sense of humor. I am very serious in my profession, but at the same time I like to have fun and I try to bring that sense of adventure to my computer world in which I am involved. If there's one thing I don't want to miss in a day, it's the computer.

I am also a faculty member of the University of St. La Salle, Computer Science Department. Although I am very busy, I don't want to give up my teaching career. It's the only way I can share to my students the God given talent and expertise in my field. My satisfaction is to see my students happy with what they've learned from me.

I fininished my Master's in Business Administration (MBA) in 1999 but it didn't stop there.  I am now in my 1st year PhD in Business Management.  Hope I can cope up the pressures of being a mother, a career woman, a teacher and a student all at the same time.
