Welcome Woodland families and students! My name is Justin Thomas, and I am the School Counselor at Woodland Elementary. A School Counselor serves students directly and indirectly by providing services to close achievement gaps in academics, social-emotional, and career domains. You can learn more about the programs I support by browsing my page, or by contacting me directly.
I completed my education at Saint Martin’s University, earning a B.A. degree in Psychology with honors in 2014, and earning my Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree in School Counseling in December 2016.
I have been an elementary School Counselor since January of 2017, starting my counseling career in Seattle Public Schools. I joined the Woodland team in fall 2017. I started my educational career as a paraeducator in NTPS, working at Lakes Elementary from 2013-16.
Prior to my career in education, I was a seasonal Park Ranger with Washington State Parks and Recreation, I completed work study at the Washington State Veterans Affairs, and I served as an Infantryman in the U.S. Army for six and-a-half years of active duty with 2-2 SBCT, 2-1 INF.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Have a great school year!
