My name is Brian Chesher and I am very excited to join the BSB family. I am originally an IBDP English teacher, who with my team teachers created an A2 and more recently a Language and Literature curriculum. After a dozen years of teaching Middle and High School English, I shifted focus to supporting students outside the curriculum in the counselling realm. Last year, in my fifth year of counselling, I attended and presented at the ISCA (Internatinal School Counselling Association) annual conference in the wellbeing section. I hope to continue to grow and develop in a similar manner as a Careers and University Counsellor.
I have a BA in Cultural Anthropology with a minor in Geography from McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada; a PGCE from Sunderland University, through Distance Education, Knowledge Village Dubai and I have an International School Counsellor Certificate from the Counsellor Training Centre, Miami, USA. I have also been a member of the International School Counselor Association and a presenter at the 2018 annual conference. I have completed a great deal of counselling PD and MOOCS.
