Hello Preschool Teachers,
My name is Melanie Smith, and I am a doctoral student at the University of Phoenix. My dissertation is called "A Case Study of Preschool Directors' Best Practices for Teacher Retention." I am recruiting additional participants for my study. I am conducting short (5 minute) interviews with preschool teachers about three areas: teacher recognition, training in the classroom, and having a social relationship at the preschool. If you are interested in participating, please click on this link. I appreciate participation so that I can graduate and so that people can read about what preschool teachers want to continue teaching in preschool. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support.
Sincerely, Melanie Smith
