About the Author

Irene Rosales

   Irene Gonzalez Rosales is a native of Corpus Christi, Texas; she taught for 30 years in the Houston area and has been writing stories for children for over 20 years. She has a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with certifications in Spanish and Journalism. Her Master’s Degree is in Elementary Education with a certification in Bilingual Education.   

   Her passion for writing started at age 12 when a teacher, who believed in her ability, encouraged her talent. Irene worked hard to instill that love for writing in her students, utilizing literature and writing in every aspect of teaching. Her belief is that even science and math are great vehicles for writing, and that writing in these subjects can be used to help children make sense of all concepts.

   Now retired, Irene is delighted to finally have the time to publish her stories. She currently resides in San Antonio, Texas with her husband John. Irene enjoys cooking, gardening, reading and writing. She and John cherish the time they spend with family, especially their grandson.
