Jaime Escalante of Stand and Deliver fame now has a stamp with his likeness available through the United States Post Office.
Escalante used innovative teaching methods in his East Los Angeles math classroom in the 1970s through the early 1990s. His students had previously been labeled as “unteachable,” but he demonstrated the importance of math and education to all students that crossed his path.

“We are all concerned about the future of American education. But as I tell my students, you do not enter the future – you create the future. The future is created through hard work.” –Jaime Escalante
