    Welcome to all preschool teachers!


    My name is Melanie Smith, and I am a doctoral student at the University of Phoenix. I am finishing my doctorate degree and need some preschool teachers to interview and ask three questions.  If you are interested in participating, please click on the link to sign up and find out more information about the research project. Thank you for your time and consideration. You can reach me at preschoolstudy2020@gmail.com.

    Dear Mary:

    My research dissertation completed for my doctorate in Educational Leadership and Supervision at NYU was entitled The Experience of Being A Director in An Early Care and Education Center. It was published in 2000. I interviewed 8 directors about their work. I also visited the centers in which they were the directors. All the centers were NAEYC accredited. I am not sure how one can access my research but it might be relevant to your topic. The interviews provided the story of being a director in an array of centers from private for-profit and not-for-profit centers to corporate-owned or corporate-sponsored centers.

    I think my research would be a counterpoint to your focus on interviewing the teachers. If you want to talk to me, you can send me an email through Hello.

    Best of luck.

    Thank you from Melanie Smith,

    Mary,

    You are so kind to post my research link on NAEYC.  I look forward to interviewing preschool teachers.

    If any preschool teachers are available and interested in being interviewed about what you think about teaching preschool education.  I look forward to finding out what your professional opinions are about being a preschool teacher.

    Thank you for your time and support.
    Sincerely
