about

One day, third-grade teacher Kyle Schwartz asked her students to fill-in-the-blank in this sentence: "I wish my teacher
knew _____." The results astounded her. Some answers were humorous, others were heartbreaking-all were profoundly moving and enlightening. The results opened her eyes to the need for educators to understand the unique realities their students face in order to create an open, safe and supportive place in the classroom. When Schwartz shared her experience online, #IWishMyTeacherKnew became an immediate worldwide viral phenomenon. Schwartz''s book tells the story of #IWishMyTeacherKnew, including many students'' emotional and insightful responses, and ultimately provides an invaluable guide for teachers, parents, and communities.

Editorial Reviews

"Schwartz delves into the hard topics that teachers have to grapple with in the classroom: poverty, family troubles, food insecurity, grief and loss, and the whole gamut of human experience that is represented in an average public school classroom. She has-if you''ll pardon the phrase-done her homework...There are no easy solutions to the issues public school students and teachers face, but the compassion and wisdom Schwartz models in both this book and her classroom surely go a long way toward alleviating her kids'' struggles. For teachers and parents, I Wish My Teacher Knew could be an invaluable toolkit."-Portland Book Review
