Hi everyone!  My name is Adam Taylor, and I am the full-time school counselor at Woodmoor Elementary.  I was born and raised in Renton, WA and graduated from the University of Washington in 2005.  Go Huskies!   I received my Master’s Degree at City University of Seattle in 2009 and have been an elementary school counselor for 11 years.  I have had the pleasure of working in Alaska, Colorado, and Port Angeles before coming to Northshore in 2018!

My mission is to make sure that every student is receiving social and emotional support at Woodmoor Elementary.  I will be achieving this by providing classroom lessons, support groups, and individual support sessions.  I will also be collaborating with parents and staff on how to meet students’ needs and foster social and emotional development.  

If you would like to contact me, please email me at, or you can go to my website to schedule an appointment Mr. Taylor's Website. I am super excited to be a part of the Woodmoor community this year and I look forward to meeting you!
