Inspirational Math Teacher

Series: Latino Biography Library

By Anne Schraff

After teaching math and science in Bolivia for ten years, Jaime Escalante arrived in California speaking little English. Through much hard work, he earned a degree in mathematics and made it back into the classroom. There, he inspired his inner-city students to pass the A.P. calculus exam. His efforts prompted Hollywood to make the movie STAND AND DELIVER about his life and dedication as an educator.
