My first book, co-authored with Katy Swalwell, came out last fall! It's called Social Studies for a Better World: An Anti-Oppressive Approach for Elementary Educators (W.W. Norton) and will soon be released as an audiobook.

My first co-edited volume with Amanda Vickery will come out in November 2022. Critical Race Theory and Social Studies Futures: From the Nightmare of Racial Realism to Dreaming Out Loud will be published by Teachers College Press and features phenomenal educators and scholars including Sohyun An, Christina Villarreal, Christopher Busey,  Tran Templeton, and many more!
