Hello, my name is Zena Youseph. I am a High School English Teacher with a great passion for English Literature. After graduating from university in 2010, I worked as an English teacher at several public schools in Southwest Sydney, before being permanently appointed at Kogarah High School as an English and EAL teacher, where I taught students with a range of abilities and needs from years 7-12.

After three years I decided I wanted to travel and gain experience in the international teaching world, and lived in Cairo, Egypt for three years, teaching English at a British school. I gained experience in the English National Curriculum as well as the International Baccalaureate. I love working with children and helping to inspire and encourage them in all their educational endeavours.
