We are more than a test score! 
"When you improve a little each day, eventually big things occur...Not tomorrow, not the next day, but eventually a big gain is made.  Don't look for the big, quick improvement.  Seek the small improvements, one day at a time.  That's the only way it happens - and when it happens that way, it lasts."  (John Wooden, successful basketball coach at UCLA)
