After this experience, she and her global collaborator: Caitlin McLemore, wrote the book Stretch Yourself: A Personalized Journey to Deepen Your Teaching Practice, published by ISTE in 2019.
In Stretch Yourself: A Personalized Journey to Deepen Your Teaching Practice, two award-winning young educators from opposite sides of the globe share their insights to guide teachers, especially those new to the profession, on how to dare to take risks and innovate in their daily teaching practice. Using the metaphor of yoga–with its focus on process and practice–the authors take teachers on a journey of self-reflection and assessment, leading them through three stages: Breathe, Stretch and Meditate. The book covers such topics as developing a sense of self-awareness to achieve excellence and the importance of maintaining balance and persevering in your practice.
