I saw a story on abc NEWS about Kyle Schwartz, who is an elementary teacher at Doull Elementary school in Denver. She wanted to get to know her students better, so she had an assignment for them. They had to finish the sentence,
"I wish my teacher knew ____________"
She was surprised at the what the kids wrote. Things such as:
"I wish my teacher knew that I don't have any pencils at home to do my homework"
"I wish my teacher knew that my reading log is not signed because my mom is not around a lot."
She started a hash tag #IWISHMYTEACHERKNEW If you watch the video in the link above, make sure you have some tissues handy, it tugs at your heart strings!
Her idea went viral, there were so many people who LOVED what she was doing! Others have copied her idea.
It made me think - what do I want people to know about asthma?
Everyone with asthma has a different story to tell. So, tell me yours! My sentence has a little different wording than the one Kyle Schwartz started, but is the same idea.
Leave a comment below and let me know:
"What I wish people knew about asthma....."
