    School Counselor

    Sarah Therriault

    I received my bachelor's degree in Biology with a Secondary Education Certification from Quincy University in 2012. As I was working with more and more high school students in the classroom, as much as I enjoyed teaching, I felt drawn toward helping them with the many other challenges life presents outside of academics. Therefore, I decided to stay at Quincy University to pursue a master's degree in School Counseling which I completed in 2015.

    Since that time I have been counseling children ages 3-18 for a small public school district in West Central Illinois. I have loved the unique aspects of working with such a wide variety of age groups and I am delighted to continue that work with the British International School of Chicago- South Loop!
