“Excellence is not an act but a habit. The things you do the most are the things you will do the best.”

Cuckoo Clock Number 15 – A Watercolor Sketch
Another one of my favorites. I’m almost done. Tomorrow is the last cuckoo clock.
About Marva Collins
American educator Marva Collins pioneered progressive education for disadvantaged children. She was born in Alabama on August 31, 1936 and in her 20’s moved to Chicago, where she founded a school for children who were at risk. After one year, every child tested at least five grades higher. Many public schools have successfully implemented her methods. She has appeared on 60 Minutes and Good Morning America and she received the National Humanities Medal from President Bush in 2004. She believes every child is a winner until someone convinces him or her too thoroughly otherwise.
