The Interview In this paper I will discuss two interviews, with two different teachers. One of the teachers teach two years old, and the other teacher teaches three year olds. I asked both teacher’s questions concerning their classroom and the students they teach. We discussed what I observed during my observation and the strategies I thought would be helpful.
