Susanne Rutherford Teacher


I love school!  I thoroughly enjoy the enthusiasm of my students and strive to make my classroom a joyful place to learn.  I feel fortunate to have been teaching in San Clemente for 30+ years.  I have two grown children and love spending time with my new grandson.  I also like spending my time near the ocean, stand up paddling,  gardening, reading, traveling, renovating houses and being anywhere outside in the sunshine.   I can't wait to meet my new students and look forward to hearing all about you!

1.  Read!  Read!  Read!

Kindergartners love stories!  Reading aloud to your child for at least 20 minutes is the most important thing that parents should do every single day.  There are so many lasting benefits of spending time together with an interesting book!  You can read picture books, chapter books, fiction, non-fiction and even some of your own childhood favorites.  Reading aloud should continue for years even after children can read alone.  Make a regular trips to the library for a whole world of interesting reading! 


2.  Kindergarten Challenge:   Can you learn to read all 40 Kindergarten Sight Words?  Practice every day to become a Star Reader!
