Teacher Asked Her Students What They Wanted Her To Know About Them And Got The Most Touching Answers

There are many professions to choose from but perhaps the one that means the most to a person is when they can choose a job that allows them to help others. It could be a first-responder job, and there are many benefits to being the first one on scene. Another job that has those types of benefits is being a teacher. Not only do we get to shape the minds of the youth, we can be there to experience some of the best moments children have to offer. That is what happened when this teacher asked her students a simple question. The answers took her by surprise.

Kyle is a third grade teacher at a low-income school in Colorado. One day, she asked her students what they wished she knew about them. She had them submit their answers anonymously on little slips of paper and later shared them on her Twitter account.

Now, a wave of teachers are posting their students’ responses on Twitter with the hashtag #iwishmyteacherknew . Many of these are heartbreaking.

A big thank you to Kyle and the other teachers of Twitter for sending in their students’ responses. To see more, check out the link at the bottom of the article.

1. “I wish my teacher knew sometimes my reading log is not signed because my mom is not around a lot.”

2. “I want my teacher to know it feels like the class picks on me. I hate that.”

3. “I wish my teacher knew how much I miss my dad because he got deported to Mexico when I was 3 years old and I haven’t seen him in 6 years.”

4. “I wish my teacher knew I don’t have friends to play with me.”

5. “I wish my teacher knew I don’t have pencils at home to do my homework.”

6. “I wish my teacher knew my parents.”

7. “I wish my teacher knew she gives too much extra homework with Math!!!”

8. “I wish Mrs. King knew that I worry because my mom is getting sick a lot and I was in the hospital last night.”

9. “I wish my teacher knew that even though sometimes I do not get good grades that I try. Also that I get stressed but when I come to your class I feel better.”

Way to go, Kyle!
