Activities: Aviculture, gardening, the beach, traveling into the South and Central American rain forests (way into the areas to learn and live with the natural environment and it’s native peoples), supporting a Yagua Indian school in Amazonia Peru, reading and continuing my education of the areas of my life of which I am passionate. (I am not nor have I ever been a camper, My love of these extreme environmental areas took me completely by surprise!)

Interests: Kind of obvious, isn’t it?! I love giving free programs and taking some of my mushy and cuddly big parrots. I get the attention of the group that way and then I can zap them with information about almost any parrot or environmental issue.

Favorite Music: Josh Groban, Yanni, private and instrumental music. David Cook and other American Idol singers.

Favorite TV Shows: Grey’s Anatomy, House, Dancing with the Stars, American Ido, Dr. Phil, Oprah, The Doctores, Ellen. (Good grief. Looks like I am a TV addict…but I’m not, really!) I forgot Bachelor/Bachelorette.

Favorite Movies: An Inconvenient Truth, 11th Hour, Big Chill. I like movies where there is a message or they enhance life as I see it. I don’t go to movies…more prone to watch a reality program on TV.

Favorite Books: The Secret, New Earth, Younger Next Year, Attitudes of Gratitude, lots of books on how to use tools and reduce clutter, Prix Macaw, and lots and lots of environmental books about our Earth and Exotic live science. (Yes, includes parrots..of course)

Favorite Quotations: “Many have forgotten this truth, but you must not forget it. You remain responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.” Antoine de Saint Exapery.

“I hope my achievements in life shall be these – that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, that I will have given help to those who were in need…that I will have left the earth a better place for what I’ve done, and who I’ve been”

My Philosophy: No where I have mentioned my three adult children. They are awesome people; Todd, Tracey, and Tara. My son Todd has spent most of his life in Chicago. Tracey is a teacher and is the mother of my two precious grandchildren; Blake & Annissa. Tara is the youngest, single, and very involved with animals (not parrots) and animal groups. Tracey is the only married child of mine, and added a very nice son-in-law to the family. My biological family is very small now that my parents, grandparents, etc. have left this good earth. I have a strong belief however; that A FAMILY IS A CIRCLE OF FRIENDS WHO LOVE YOU. My many years of teaching certainly gave me some wonderful friends as over 30 o the years was in the same school; Campbell Elementary, Mona Shores-Norton Shores Michigan. With being in one building so long I had children in class from children I’d had in class! My God daughter was in my class. School was not a job…it was my life and love. Many wonderful things have happened to me as a result of all those years. Two of the dearest to my hear were the “Tolerance Award” and placement of my name on the wall, and “Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers”. This was particularly dear as a form student nominated me for this when she was a senior in high school. I had no idea that she had done it and I have her as a student in first grade! Nicole is now a lawyer I’m told.





She Who Is a Survivor

Lemons to lemonade,

This woman is a survivor.

When opportunity knocks,

It sometimes knocks her down,

But this woman never

Lets it get her down for long.

Whether it be relationships,

Her health or professional life,

Her reservoir of love and faith

Emerges as a triumphant shining example.

She is a woman who truly knows the value of

Family, friendship, and the gift of time,

Laying aside all judgment

And giving unconditional love.

-Suzy Toronto 2002
