Shaping the future

Meet Thomas

USC Education Graduate, now working as a primary school teacher.

Thomas Biden

“I'm a Year 3 classroom teacher in my hometown of Hervey Bay. The most rewarding part of my day are those lightbulb moments when something clicks and seeing their face smile when they've got something.”

After growing up in Hervey Bay, Thomas knew he wanted to stay close to home when considering uni study. A desire to shape the minds of the future propelled Thomas to a Primary Education degree at USC Fraser Coast, where he was able to undertake placements in the local community and attend field trips abroad. Thomas currently works as primary school teacher at Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School in his hometown.
