Jaime Escalante 12/31/30 – 3/30/10

Mr Escalante Made a huge impact as a Teacher In our lives. I wasnt a student of his but have met many people that have succeded & have shared the wonderful experiances. Mr. Escalante didn’t just teach math. Like all great teachers, he changed lives. Gang members became aerospace engineers. Dr.s, Teachers, Police Officers, Presidents of huge corporations. Kids who had spent their youth convinced their lives didn’t matter discovered that they were leaders. Jaime exposed one of the most dangerous myths of our time – that inner city students can’t be expected to perform at the highest levels, Because of him, that destructive idea has been shattered forever”. Gracias for all you have done for our people & community.
Que Descanse En Paz Sr. Escalante
