Meet Our Counselor

Hello Timberwolves! My name is Dorian Stoker and I am the School Counselor at Taylor Canyon Elementary.  I am extremely pleased to have the opportunity to serve our school and community.
I have been a counselor in Ogden City Schools since August 1993, making this my 27th year in the district.  My past assignments were at Mount Ogden Middle School/Junior High School for 20 years (from 1993-2013) then splitting my time between Shadow Valley and Wasatch Elementary Schools for 6 years (2013-2019).
I have a B.S. degree (Composite degree in Business and Education) from Brigham Young University in 1980; and M. Ed. In Educational Psychology (Counseling and Guidance emphasis) in 1985, also from BYU.
I am the proud father of 3 amazing and accomplished (now adult) children.  And adoring grandfather of 7.
  I am so excited to be supporting all Taylor Canyon Timberwolf students! I am a strong advocate and believer of supporting daily student success along with college and career readiness preparations.

Counselor Corner


As we approach spring, it’s time for us to get our 6th Grade student(s) courses selected for next year in Junior High.

We are required to complete the course selections for the Junior High School that the student lives in the boundaries of.   If you plan to have your student attend a different Junior High School within Ogden School District, we can repeat the process for the school of choice.   PLEASE BE AWARE….YOU MUST APPLY FOR A BOUNDARY EXCEPTION if you plan for your student to attend a different school.

During March I will be having meetings with our 6th Grade students.  These are known as College and Career Readiness Plan (CCR Plan) Conferences. 

College and Career Readiness Plan (CCR Plan) Conferences will be held virtually (via the Google Meet platform) this year.

Parents/Guardians will participate remotely.   When the conference is held during school hours, students will participate using a Chromebook computer in the Counselor's Office.  Student and Counselor will be masked, will be at least 10 feet apart, and the computer will be sanitized after each use prior to the next user's conference.

If parents/guardians don't have internet capabilities from home, they are invited to join their student in the Counselor's office (masked).

A very limited number of conference times may be available outside of school hours.  In this case the student and the parent/guardian will participate from their home and I (Mr. Stoker) will participate from my home.

If you have questions, please feel free to email me at, or call/text me at 801-332-0583.  

College and Career Readiness (CCR) Conferences will be held virtually (via the Google Meet platform) this year.

Helpful Sites on Safe Technology Use

While, from the perspective of the guardian, limiting technology-based interactions during the summer appears to be in the best interest of a child or teen, it's important to understand the positive and negative impacts this may bring about. In this vacation-themed blog, we'll explore how to effectively integrate healthy technology practices into a summer routine.
Today’s children are growing up in a high-tech world. According to a 2015 national survey by Common Sense Media, 53 percent of children 8 to 12 have their own tablet, and 24 percent have their own smartphone.
Great Attendance is: Every Student, attends school Every Day, and On Time. Please continue helping your student attend school every single day.  Classrooms celebrate by earning the Weekly Best Attendance Trophy.  If your student must be absent, please call the attendance line 801-737-8950 first thing in the morning and leave a message of your student's name, grade, your name, and reason for absence.

School counselors are advocates for students. They seek to build relationships to help students grow emotionally, socially and academically. Counselors are first and foremost here to support student academic and learning development, helping students achieve school success. Second, life and career development, which helps students focus on future life and career goals. Counselors work to provide an awareness of multicultural and global citizenship to allow students to see opportunity in the ever evolving global communities. Finally, the school counselor provides social and emotional support allowing students to develop resiliency and strength as they work towards their future. Your school counselor is in the school to support you!
