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.

I received a free, uncorrected electronic copy of this excellent book from Kyle Schwartz, Netgalley, and Perseus Books Group, DaCapo Press in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for sharing your work with me. This is a tutorial on transforming a classroom into a community. Ms. Schwartz is a third grade teacher in the Denver, Co. area who has much to share with her students, other teachers, parents, caregivers and mentors. this is an excellent look into what it takes to form the support network we all wish for our children as they learn life's lessons. I wish this teacher knew how much I will be able to use her advice in my daily life. Again, thank you!
