Jaime Escalante

Born in Bolivia in 1930, Jaime Escalante garnered international recognition in 1988, when his story was told in the acclaimed film "Stand and Deliver." The film stars Edward James Olmos as Escalante, a teacher who taught math to troubled students at a tough East Los Angeles school.
