Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 school year!  My name is Annetta Puumala and I am the speech/language clinician at Loring School.   I have taught at Loring for 13 years.    My bachelor's degree is in elementary education and my master's degree is in communication disorders (speech/language pathology).    I have had experience as an elementary classroom teacher and as a speech clinician, and have taught in both Iowa and Minnesota.

I work with High-5 through 5th grade students at Loring School.   My goal as a speech clinician is to help children become effective communicators!

Outside of school I enjoy walking, canoeing,  connecting with family and friends,  and being involved at my church.   My husband and I live in the Camden neighborhood.    Over the years I have been interested in increasing my Spanish language skills.   I have had the opportunity to study at language schools in Costa Rica and Guatemala.    

It is a privilege to work with your children.   Thank you for sharing them with me!   Let's have a great year working together to help them grow and succeed.
