I am a writer starting work on a piece for the April 2009 issue of American Baby magazine about how parents of preschoolers can use the insights of their children's preschool teachers to help their children. For example, a teacher might notice a speech or motor-skills delay sooner than a parent and suggest help that will improve the child's life, health, ability to learn, etc.

Specifically, I am interested in talking to several preschool teachers to share their experiences in noticing something in a child that a parent had missed, and the outcome of that. The aim of the story is to help parents appreciate the insights that teachers have, since they see a child in a different light than a parent does, and a teacher's insights can be very valuable.

My deadline is January 5, so with the holiday I'm hoping to start my interviews early next week (week of 12/8). Please let me know if you have any questions - and thank you very much for your consideration of this request.
