I was first introduced to this amazing educator
in a 1981 made-for-TV movie
called "The Marva Collins Story"
starring Cicely Tyson.
Marva's philosophy and attitude toward education
left an indelible impression upon me.
Through Marva, I learned to
"see the flow of knowledge"
and pass that legacy on to the children
I would have someday.
Marva would be proud to know that
she inspired me to instill in my daughters
an insatiable curiosity about life,
a love for learning,
and confidence in themselves.
Thank you, Marva!
