The most useful Jaime Escalante quotes you will be delighted to read
One of the greatest things you have in life is that no one has the authority to tell you what you want to be. You're the one who'll decide what you want to be.

Ask 'How will they learn best?' not 'Can they learn?'.
You burros have calculus in your blood.
The day someone quits school he is condemning himself to a future of poverty.
Life is not about how many times you fall down. It's about how many times you get back up.

"Ganas is all you need."

If we expect kids to be losers they will be losers;
if we expect them to be winners they will be winners. They rise, or fall, to the level of the expectations of those around them, especially their parents and their teachers.
I do not believe in the gifted. If [the students] have ganas, I can make them do it.
It goes like this: teaching is touching life
One of the greatest things in life is that no one has the authority to tell you what you want to be. You're the one who'll decide what you want to be.
