Col Pomeroy



"Colonel Pomeroy is well loved by students. Every time a student sees him, they are sure to greet him with smiles and even a high-five! He's understanding, patient and works with kids. He'll do what he can for those who feel restless during class; letting them run for a few minutes outside, shooting hoops with the basketball, etc." (Parent)

"Colonel Pomeroy is such a fun teacher! He adds a lot of humor and happiness to Physics class. He is wise and Christlike, truly caring to advise us students to make good decisions. He’s very laid back and approachable and likes to remind us that “it’s just a piece of paper” - in other words, don’t be stressed out. Being a science teacher, he does teach us difficult concepts, but is persistent in explaining things and slowing down to match our pace, making time in his class so valuable." (Student)

"Colonel is very easy to talk with and a very good listener. He's an all around man." (Parent)

"Beyond grateful for his leadership, humility and passion for these children and for the families as well!" (Parent)
