A Legend Is Lost

Jaime Escalante, probably best known as the math guru depicted in the film Stand and Deliver, died recently.

I had my issues with the way he was depicted, but I am saddened to hear that his gift of teaching is lost to the world.His methods were unique: grueling, intense, sarcastic, and mandatory.

We’ve lost a legend. I hope a new legacy begins in another classroom.

    His methods actually helped my daughter a lot. We will miss this amazing teacher.
