Admin Information

Pomeroy School District #110 employs a part-time superintendent along with a business manager and part-time district secretary. The special services administrator serves as a teacher and counselor at the junior-senior high school. The other portion of the superintendent's work is elementary principal, while the district secretary works as the associated student secretary.From the description above, you can tell this staff, considered the support staff within most larger districts, is tied to the daily learning involving students and staff as well as interaction of students. This staff serves a family atmosphere in the operation of the district. Anyone entering the office knows they are not a number, rather a cared for individual.

I grew up in Pomeroy and graduated from Pomeroy High School in 1994. I moved back to farm with my husband Jacob after graduating from WSU in 1999.  We welcomed Jace, our first son, in 2001 and our second son, Trent in 2004.  They are the loves of our life and we enjoy every minute we spend with them!

I graduated from Washington State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education.  I completed my Master’s Degree in Technology in Education through Lesley University, and was Nationally Board Certified in November 2009. I recently earned my Principal Certification from Gonzaga University. I am a life-long learner and will continue to look for opportunities for educational growth. 

I taught at Pomeroy Elementary for eleven years, teaching kindergarten, sixth grade and finally settling into third grade. I enjoyed every year that I taught and look for every opportunity to interact and continue to teach our students. I have now begun a new adventure as the elementary principal. In my classroom, I promoted an atmosphere of safety, trust, and respect and plan to do the same as an administrator. I work hard to build a sense of community among students and staff and I emphasize the idea of teamwork. I value cooperation and collaboration and believe great things can happen when we work together!

I grew up in Lewiston and graduated from Lewiston High School in 1988. During my high school years I started my first business “Lori’s Sweet Machine” selling ice cream, soda, hot dogs and candy to whoever would stop me. I married Kent Flynn in 1992. We traveled several years as electricians in the construction industry all throughout the United States.After having our first son we decided it was time to settle down and stay put in one area.This decision brought Kent back to his hometown and myself to a new experience of Pomeroy. I love living in such a great little community. We worked our family electrical business for about 10 years, during that time I worked part time at US Bank as well. I have been recently hired to start as the new ASB/District Secretary. It is going to be a great experience working with such dedicated and caring people. I am very fortunate to be able to go to school with our boys, Wyatt and Walker.

I grew up in the small town of Challis, ID (similar in size to Pomeroy) and graduated from Prairie High School in Cottonwood, ID in 1997. My husband and I married in 2005, and have two daughters who keep me busy between dance, soccer, basketball, softball, and 4H.

I attended the University of Idaho and graduated with a degree in Business and Marketing Education in May 2001. My first teaching position was at Payette, ID as one of three Business Teachers. I then relocated to Lewiston, Idaho to teach Careers and work as the 504 Coordinator at Lewiston High School. I also coached varsity softball and junior high basketball during my first seven years of teaching. I began teaching Business classes at Pomeroy High School in 2011 and completed my administrative internship the following year, earning my Master’s Degree from the University of Idaho in School Administration in 2012.

I taught Business classes for 7 years at PHS and worked as Lead Teacher for 4 years under the guidance of Mr. LaMunyan. I am excited to begin my career in administration with the staff and students that I like to call my school family. My plans include continuing with the success that Pomeroy Jr/Sr High School has experienced and make changes that will benefit all students and staff. I have high expectations for myself, my staff, and my students and will continue to expect more of myself and others as we continue to grow and change as a school. I want to find new ways to carry out our mission of “Making People Better” and value the knowledge and experience that my staff has and know that as a team we will do great things.

I attended Pomeroy High School from 1995-1999 and participated in athletics, FFA, student body government, other extra-curricular activities while I was at PHS. After graduation I enrolled at Washington State University where I received a B.A. in Business Finance and Business Management and Minored in Accounting and Human Resource Management. I began as the Business Manager of the Pomeroy School district in April 2007 and have enjoyed my experience here. The dedication to educating students by all staff at Pomeroy makes this a great place to work and I am very fortunate to be part of the Pomeroy School District Staff.
