Toowoomba Catholic Schools welcomes graduate teachers eager to make a difference in the community

2024 Graduate Teachers

Toowoomba Catholic Schools is thrilled to announce the addition of exceptional graduate teachers to our esteemed group of educators across the Toowoomba Diocese. These new teachers are set to make a difference in the lives of their students and are eager to embark on their teaching careers. We spoke to four graduate teachers about what inspired them to become teachers and what they are most excited about in their first year.

Gabby Brac, a new graduate teacher joining Mater Dei Primary School in Toowoomba, is excited about the prospect of having her own class and being able to impart her knowledge and wisdom to students. She firmly believes that education has the power to shape young minds and is committed to providing a nurturing and engaging learning environment. Her passion for teaching started as a School Based Apprentice at St Thomas More’s School in Toowoomba where she was inspired to continue this career path. Gabby knew she had to work in education from a young age and one day hopes to teach in developing countries.
