Testimonials from Previous Attendees

  • Anna Pridgen did a wonderful workshop for the Preschool Programs of the Lexington, SC area. She has lots of energy and makes the puppets come alive. Her workshop was well organized and she gave ideas that we could use the next day in the classroom. She included a "make it, take it" project at the end so everyone left with something. The participants gave her excellent marks on the evaluation form we used at the end. I would highly recommend her workshop.

  • Hi Anna! My name is Kim Dardis and I just wanted to let you know that I think you are amazing! I really enjoyed your seminar to the fullest. You know you are doing great things when someone like myself is still singing your songs 3 weeks after!!!! Keep up the great work!
     
  • Hey Anna, this is Erica. Just wanted to tell you I had a blast at the seminar with the puppet show and all. It was absolutely amazing to watch that. I know my daughter would have had the time of her life. You definitely have the special gift that most people strive for. See you soon.
     
  • Hi Anna, this is Chrissy. Just wanted to tell you that I had a wonderful time at your conference. You inspired me so much. and I couldn’t wait to take it all back to share with my two year old class. Thank you again. Hope to see you again soon.
     
  • Hello Anna, this is Ms. Deanna. Unfortunately I was unable to attend the seminar when you were in town. However, I have been truly inspired by all of my co-workers! They have taught me all of the songs, and hand movements too! And with all of the things Terri purchased that day, I feel like I was really there. I just can't wait to see you live and in person! I think our children are really going to love, as they have responded so positively to the books and CDs already!
     
  • Anna,
    I have had several people from CCC come back and say they are seeing your ideas in the classrooms. They are working very well. Your smelly idea is spreading very fast. It was such a joy for me to be able to provide such new and refreshing ideas to Pinellas County. Everyone has only had wonderful positive comments about your presentation and they have asked to have you back at future conferences. I hope we can work out the details in the future. I would also encourage you to participate at the ECA conference in Orlando in September. I know you would be well received.

    Thank You
