Her teaching career spans more than 25 years. She has most recently taught English at Sandra Day O'Connor High School in San Antonio, Texas, where she was named Educator of the Year in 2003.

Other recent publications include Why We Must Run with Scissors (with Barry Lane) and Reviving the Essay: Teaching Structure without Formula. She is also the author of Lightning in a Bottle, a program featuring photographs (on CD-ROM) that are used to prompt and guide student writing. In addition, Gretchen presents several hands-on workshops and staff-development seminars every year, in various locations across the U.S.
Similar in look, concept, and layout to Morris' other photoessays, such as Weddings (1995) and Teamwork (1999), this volume offers photographs of families around the world, strung together along a thread of text. Each page carries one, two, or three photos, and sometimes a word or phrase as well. Visually, the book makes the point that families come in many varieties, with one parent or two, with or without brothers and sisters or extended family. Sometimes family members look like each other, but not always. The text explains that some members are adopted or living with a foster family or a grandparent. The book will be generally reassuring to children, except those old enough or observant enough to question the basic truth of sentences such as the one that opens this book: "Everyone, everywhere is part of a family."
