Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

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.

   Must Read for Teachers
Amazon's terms of service state that I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Great resource for teachers, librarian Janet Grubb said. I made a conscious effort to think about what I could do as a teacher to help my students, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Sometimes we get caught up in curriculum that we don't think about what our students are dealing with in the classroom. I want to be a more caring, loving teacher, she said.

   Great Author and book
I just spoke with the author in Denver and she said she has a passion for teaching, too. I would want her to come into my house and teach my kids.

   Did not meet my expectations of what the books was going to be about.
It was a very different experience for me than I expected from the book. Don't get me wrong the book was well written and had plenty of information, but I think it would be very useful to fellow teachers who want to build relationships with their students and help them grow and develop self-esteem, said Mary Beth Williams, a teacher at the school. It's a subset of people that are most at risk of mental decline, especially in socio-economic groups. I was looking for a book with little stories, both funny and sad, of children take on the sentence. I wish my teacher knew what was going on. The book was provided to me in return for an unbaised and honest review of Mr. Powell's book.

When I saw to this book it showed all these supe rneat letters from the kids to the teacher, and I absolutely, positively, no way! it's all stuff a teacher think sof things----I was shocked--even the cover--it is going right back--if you think you will find letters from kids!

   Pretty good
It's a pretty good read, too. I would have probably read this if it wasn't required for my college course, but I'm glad I did. I dislike young children but this book helped me get a better understanding of how to interact with them if I ever have to.

   Great Quick Resource
This book is a wonderful read to help build relationships with your students. I would like to do it with teachers. The writer of the letter said that although he wishes his principal knew, he didn't know what would have happened if the child had told her.

   A read over and over book.
I have pages bookmarked, tabs and corners folded over. Not to mention lines after lines? It is a great book with lots of great information for a classroom teacher, Mary.

   Would recommend
I really changed my view of teaching because of this book. It was an entertaining and informative read that helped me to understand the underlying problems that students may be dealing with before they even get to school. I would definitely recommend it to my students. It's also a great read for teachers already in the classroom.

   Great, eye opening book.
I had to buy this book for one of my college courses and write a report on it. I usually hate book reports, but this one was great. It was very easy to read and the book was fairly long, even with bigger pages. It was easy to analyze, even for those with limited English. It is eye opening to see that not all things are as they appear.
