Yusra is passionate about teaching and looks upon teaching as a spiritually satisfying profession.
She had earlier taught children at the individual level and had a brief teaching experience in a school in Chennai before she moved to APL Global School in 2015.
As the Poet Kahlil Gibran writes about teachers-” The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind”, Yusra constantly endeavours to make her students more reflective about their learning than simply imbibe raw facts delivered by the teacher.
She is an ardent supporter of the school’s philosophy of inclusion and acceptance and believes that it forms the grassroots for an inclusive society.
At APL, Yusra teaches Combined Science in Junior School.
