GGAE Counselor

Theresa Trieu

Returning back to school can be difficult for many students, especially for English language learners, parents, immigrants, and more. As the counselor, I am here to help transition students back to school to prepare them for the workforce or continuing education at the college level. I am here to provide support and care for all students to ensure they are successful academically, personally, and in their careers. Feel free to schedule an appointment with me to discuss your goals and what you hope to achieve at Garden Grove Adult Education!

I can speak and understand conversational Vietnamese and Spanish!
