After building up strong leadership skills with a career in tourism in Indonesia, Ms. Condro Lukitosari has come to understand her calling: working and teaching kids in a hands-on environment. 

Lukitosari enjoys teaching history, especially her US History class, because she can relate it to what is going on in the country and around the world. To manage conflicting opinions on these societal issues that may arise in the classroom, Lukitosari said, “I want to ensure that everyone’s voice is heard, and I want to ensure there is an open mindedness in the classroom.” 

A student of hers, Caroline McCurdy ’22, agreed. “She’s really good at staying open to everyone’s opinions, and she accepts what everyone says.” She asks students to acknowledge their biases and accept them as opinion instead of fact, and in doing so, Lukitosari is challenging them to be better students and people.

Lukitosari brings global experience into the Wellesley community and hopes to spread this point of view to every student she makes a connection with throughout her career.
