Kyle Schwartz    has been asking a common question to her students ‘I wish my teacher knew’  and gets some unique replies. Being the teacher of a very low-income group, she talks about the relationship a teacher should be sharing with his/her student.  Being  a   Colorado teacher of the third grade,  Kyle has been a follower and inspiration to the other teachers as well. It is often noticed that differences exist between teachers and students which however mostly happen because they fail to understand what exactly a kid wants to say.  Here are some of the pictures of the students’ replies that Schwartz has recently Twitted. These are sure to raise some conscious thoughts among the teachers and will make them think. Are we going wrong somewhere?

Have a Look..!

Teachers often keep on shouting at their students for not getting signed their exercise book by their parents. This is one of the reasons why they can’t!

Thinking that some of the problems could be solved, Kyle filled the bag of the student with a pencil box.

With this, she confronted a group of students making an effort to make friends.

This made Kyle understand that the child misses her/his dad and therefore, she began using the word family instead of mom and dad.

With this Kyle understands that the student often falls sleepy in the class because she shares the bed  with her  brother, who snores loudly at night.

This move of Kyle inspired other teachers too to make an attempt to understand the children.  Following Kyle, they too started tweetting.

We appreciate the thoughts of Kyle Schwartz that she is trying so hard to bridge the gap between teachers and students and also requests other teachers to make an effort to do the same and wish to know what their students want from them! This way the students will express themselves better that will show in their performances.
