Sunshine Coast Students & Staff

Portrait of Sharon Curtiss

Sharon Curtiss

Campus Manager

My love of teaching and working with International students comes from my passion for travel and meeting new people. I started working at Lexis English in 2003 and taught for a number of years before moving into management. I’ve been based at the Sunshine Coast campus since 2011. I think I have the best job in the world.Our academic staff at Lexis Sunshine Coast share the same passion for high quality teaching and helping students on their individual language learning journeys.

Qualifications: I have a Nursing Degree, Celta qualification and a IDLTM.

Passions: Travel, exploring new places, swimming at the beach and family.

"The Sunshine Coast campus is surrounded by stunning beaches, cafes, restaurants and bars, great shopping and plenty of free weekend activities. Moments away from the famous Ocean Street markets and a short walk from Cotton Tree, which is a relaxed ‘locals’ spot."

"Making friends with international students was priceless. I could learn lots of different points of view from different cultures by spending time with them and get my best friend from the other side of the world. Everything I learnt here is going to be helpful for the next step in my life. No matter how much time goes by from now on, I will cherish those precious experiences from Lexis forever."
