I Wish My Teacher Knew: How One Question Can Change Everything for Our Kids by Kyle Schwartz
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.
We welcome new participants; previous book studies are not prerequisites to join this discussion. Participation is FREE, but the book is not provided. CEUs are available for a $20 processing fee.
