Hello! Suzanne-Marie.com is a Canadian educator, author, parent and grandparent who writes about rethinking values as a way for children to find their own voices.
Two Essential Beliefs For Helping Children Find Their Own Voices
Make connections that matter in your life.
Learn to make the most of relationships, whether in your home, classroom, workplace, or community.
Move from conflict to collaboration by setting healthy boundaries in your relationships.
Approach your relationships with the same ease and grace you would a painting, a dance, or a fire.
Acceptance builds community. Welcome people as they are, not as you want them to be. Treat others as they want to be treated, not as you think they should be treated.
Appreciation creates opportunity. Nurture everyone’s strengths, and honour their journey to create powerful connections to help them set appropriate goals for where they want to go in life.

Practical Strategies to Foster Children’s Resilience, Joy and Empathy
If you are an educator, parent, or grandparent and looking for practical strategies to use with children, concepts to understand, and ideas that can be easily implemented about how to create space for self and others, you have landed in the right spot.
With many opportunities to share space with children, youth, and adults of all ages and abilities I have spent a significant part of my career as an educator working to get at the core of what learning and education are all about. Most importantly, I have been a practitioner. I have also been a consultant, mediator, parent, and coach and now share what I have learned through Suzanne-Marie.com and other resources.
I share the many lessons about what I have learned in my Blog.
I am an avid storyteller and published author of fiction and nonfiction as well as an international speaker. With a Master’s degree in Conflict Resolution and a Master’s degree in Education, I’ve merged my passion for storytelling with my expertise in resolving conflicts to write children’s books that not only teach lessons for life but also allow for social skills development. My first children’s book, ‘Ada and Her Magic Feather’ (2022), is a powerful coming-of-age story encapsulating the importance of family, the value of courage, and the transformative power of friendship.
My Core Values are Gratitude, Authenticity, Compassion, and Courage.
My goal is to create a community for people who have a passion for making a difference.
