Trent continued his interest in Social Studies at the University of Washington where he earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees in History and Political Science with a minor in Art History. During his time at UW, Trent developed an interest for overseas travel while attending the Italian Studies program at the UW Rome Center in Italy. Trent decided to pursue a career in high school teaching during his experiences tutoring at Franklin and Garfield High Schools in Seattle. He graduated from the UW Masters in Teaching program in 2008.

After completing student teaching experiences at Lindbergh High School in Renton, Mountlake Terrace High School, and the Trondheim International School in Norway, Trent began his public school teaching career at Shelton High School.
