My name is Edwin Dela Cruz and I am from the Philippines. I was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering from Saint Louis University then became an IT engineer for several years working for two IT companies developing both hardware and software for tablets and mobile phones. I was then offered a job in Thailand where I found my passion for teaching. This led me to complete my Diploma in Teaching Education and started a new career. I discovered that teaching isn’t just about presenting information to students, it is encouraging them to learn for themselves, to be inquisitive, independent, creative, and resourceful so that they can excel in the real world. I like asking questions and I’m hoping to bring an enquiring mind to my classes. One of my favourite quotes on education is a quote from Einstein: “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”
