This Teachers Asked A Simple Question And The Answers Overwhelmed Her


Last year, a 3rd-grade teacher, Kyle Schwartz in an attempt to know her students better came up with a project. The project had an incomplete question, “I wish my teacher knew,” the students were supposed to complete the sentence with a confession.

The results were sometimes adorable and other times heartbreakingly honest.

“I wish my teacher knew I don’t have friend to play with me.”


Her different approach and results were shared on the internet and the Twitter hashtag #iwishmyteacherknew became viral in no time. A lot of teachers followed suit and asked their students the same question and shared their results with Kyle.

“I wish my teacher knew sometimes my reading log is not signed because my mom is not around a lot.”


The responses she got from teachers, students and parents for her initiative were so overwhelming that she wrote a book: I Wish My Teacher Knew: How One Question Can Change Everything For Our Kids.

In the book, Schwartz stresses upon the fact that how important it is for parents and teachers to make extra effort to understand a child.
