"Touch of Greatness" - Video about teacher; "Geranium on the Windowsill Just Died...."

"Students are turned on by greatness and bored by mediocrity."

"Children who get early exposure to great art, great music, great literature, don’t run away from it - ever in their lifetime - it’s like a friend."
- From preview clip of PBS movie, “A Touch of Greatness.”
