His genius for teaching has made him the subject of both a book and a movie. Yet when Jaime Escalante first immigrated to this country, his only student was himself.

In Bolivia, Escalante spent eleven years as a math and physics teacher. In America, unable to speak the language, he had to settle for mopping floors. It was only after teaching himself English that he was able to reenter the teaching profession. Distributed by Tubemogul.

Jaime Escalante, the celebrated educator portrayed in the film Stand and Deliver, passed away on Tuesday, March 30. The American Program Bureau is proud to have represented Escalante as a speaker for more than twenty years as he shared his story, inspiring educators, students and individuals to push themselves to achieve greatness.
