Teacher hoping to learn more about students sparks inspiring campaign

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A nationwide social media campaign is giving new insight into the lives of children.

A Colorado elementary school teacher asked her students to write notes saying, “I wish my teacher knew.”

Kyle Schwartz says she wanted to know more about her students, but what she learned surprised her.

The responses included things like, “I wish my teacher knew I don’t have pencils at home,” and “My reading log is not signed because my mom is not around a lot.”

Schwartz shared the notes on Twitter, and since then tweets have been pouring in.

#IWishMyTeacherKnew has been trending on Facebook and Twitter.
