Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Brian Cheesman

Greetings Southland friends and family,

My name is Mr. Brian Cheesman and this is my fourth year in the Social Studies Department at Southland College Prep High School.  I received an undergradute degree in history from Lewis University where I was fortunate enough to study for a summer at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy.  I then received my graduate degree in education and began my career in teaching.

I bring a wide range of experience to the classroom having had a different career before becoming a teacher.  I was a financial consultant and registered stockbroker for 12 years.  In the summer of 2006 I decided to sell my successful financial consulting business and pursue my dream of traveling the world.  I spent the next eight years visiting some the most beautiful places in the world.  I enjoy sharing these experiences with students and building excitement about their education and where it can lead them.  

Please feel free to reach out to me at with any questions or comments.  

Thank you,

Mr. Cheesman
