AUTHOR: Consuelo Treviño-Ramirez
Consuelo Treviño-Ramirez attended Texas A&M University at Kingsville, where she received a master of science degree in elementary education with a minor in psychology and art. She began writing poetry in order to reinforce her counseling lessons for the students. As a passionate activist and advocate for the conservation of green spaces and native wildlife, she motivated her students to successfully lobby and save a beautiful wooded area as a nature park. After thirty-one years as an educator, Consuelo continues to be active in her artwork, creative writing, ecological conservation, and singing as a soprano in her church choir. She hopes that her short stories and poems will creatively inspire children to read, write, study, and become good, productive citizens. Consuelo currently resides in Laredo, Texas, with her spouse and son.
