Denver teacher Kyle Schwartz’s “I wish my teacher knew” lesson revealed the candid realities of her students’ lives.
Kyle Schwartz, a teacher at Denver's Doull Elementary, wanted to know more about what was going on with her students, and so she had a lesson idea.
"As a new teacher, I struggled to understand the reality of my students' lives and how to best support them," she told ABC News . "I just felt like there was something I didn't know about my students."
Though she gave them the option to be anonymous, many wanted to come forward and share their truths with the class, she said.
