I was saddened this week when I read that Jaime Escalante, the teacher who inspired the movie Stand and Deliver, passed away after a battle with cancer. Being a teacher, this movie really hits home. Having the vision to help struggling students that the rest of the world is ready to give up on is a great gift.
This inspirational movie follows Escalante as he works toward a goal of teaching inner-city kids Calculus. His passion for his students and their success is amazing. This is one of those feel-good movies that every person should see once in their life.
Have a great Friday!
