Publisher's Summary

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.

Not worth the time

Not worth the time to read. Very little time actually spent on "What I wish my teacher knew", and more time talking about stats and studies. Title quite misleading.

Poor narrator

Loved the content, the narrator was hard to listen to though. This gave me good perspective on what my kids go through.

Exceptional reading for all teachers and professor

I'm not a teacher but this was a great read. I took away some key parenting tools,. If you are an educator than you should read this book. It is a guide to great teaching and it's also enjoyable.
