Welcome to Room 103 with
Ms. Rahaim and Ms. Trump

I am Susan Rahaim, and I am thrilled to be starting my 20th year as a Kindergarten teacher in Wayland. This is my fourth year at Claypit Hill School. Until I helped pilot the full-day Kindergarten program at Loker School seven years ago, I served at Loker as a traditional day Kindergarten teacher in the mornings and a Special Needs teacher in the afternoons.  Before coming to Wayland, I taught for many years (at various times) as a Kindergarten teacher, a First Grade teacher and a Special Needs teacher in Natick, Brookline and Damariscotta, Maine.   When I am not teaching, I like spending time with my husband and three grown daughters. 

I am fortunate to have taught together with Kristin Trump for all of the years I have been in Wayland.  Before coming to Claypit Hill with me, she had been a Kindergarten Teaching Assistant and BASE teacher at Loker School for over 5 years. 

For us, teaching Kindergarten is the BEST JOB IN THE WORLD!! Each year we are amazed to watch the growth of the five-and-six-year-olds in our classroom.  They enter kindergarten with so many different interests, strengths, learning styles and levels of performance.  We see it as our job to support the learning of each individual so that they can each learn what they need to learn – with joy and pride in their accomplishments.
