The evaluations are in from the one-hour telephone course on Mother Goose I presented on Friday, February 20, 2009 for the Education Institute, part of The Partnership - Canada's national network of provincial and territorial library associations.
-Speaker was clear, spoke quickly but was easy to listen to and understand. Covered a lot of info.
-We had a great time! We now have many new songs (with lyrics) to offer our toddlers at storytime.
-Enjoyed the enthusiasm of the speaker. it was very well organized and presented.
-Enjoyed this session very much. It was great to see that we are on the right track here in our library as we follow a similar, though not exact, way of doing our baby and toddler programs.
-Reassuring to know that we already incorporate many of the suggestions in our program; great to get new rhyme ideas.
-I appreciated the balance of theoretical information as well as practical examples of stuff I can use in my programs.
-I appreciate the enthusiasm and new ideas. I'm looking forward to trying them.
