Praise for Rebecca Jane Flanagan

"Hi Rebecca I just want to thank you for presenting another amazing workshop. It is refreshing to attend a workshop and feel so excited to be able to take what I have learnt back to my classroom and use immediately. You are such an inspirational speaker, teacher, mentor and advocate for music and movement in early childhood. Thank you for the great notes as a keepsake of the afternoon. I am sure my copy will be well used. Please thank your gorgeous mum for the lovely cooking. afternoon tea was amazing and to have a cuppa from such special cups made me feel special. Just a little thing that meant so much.” ~ Marie, Pre Primary Teacher

"I was one of those teachers lucky enough to attend this great PD. I spent a very enjoyable afternoon singing and dancing with Rebecca and then we had a delicious afternoon tea prepared by Rebecca's mum. Thank you  ladies."  - Melissa, ECE Teacher
