It was sad to hear of Jaime Escalante’s passing. Long ago as a college student, I had the chance to have dinner with him. It wasn’t so much his person that was inspirational, it was his simple message that made me take a look at what we do and how we do it. We shoot ourselves down before we give ourselves a chance. So many times, it is not the method used to try to accomplish something, it is actually the work you do to get to it. Rest Mr. Escalante, your work on this earth continues in the sincerity of many teachers and in the seeds you planted in the students of your classes long ago.
