Tunu Lukumbuzya

My name is Tunu Lukumbuzya and currently teaching in an International Baccalaureate secondary school in Tanzania. I am a confident, energetic, and self-motivated professional who is dedicated to working with others from all age groups. I am an inspirational educator who has spent close to 30 years in the teaching profession. As an international adult, I have had exposure to various cultures and languages through my travels that began in my early childhood as a result of my family’s diplomatic background. If I were to choose a motto that represents my philosophy in life, it would be “knowledge is power”. From my Tanzanian parents, I learned that education affords a person control over their life when they use the knowledge they attain. From my experiences, I have come to comprehend that education not only takes place in a formal classroom setting, it also takes place wherever and whenever a person is open to learning from others and their surroundings. I am a lifelong learner who enjoys the challenge of taking on opportunities that continue to build my professional and personal experiences.
