Mrs. Ruth Escamilla is a new para here at Alliance High School, teaching a multitude of subjects to non-English speaking students. She was born in Washington D.C., but moved around the US a lot as a child. She graduated in Mexico and received her GED through the Alliance Public Schools. Mrs. Escamilla has been in working in school systems for 25 years, and worked as a para at the Alliance Middle School before coming to AHS. She became a para because she realized the importance of helping students learn English as a second language.

Mrs. Escamilla was inspired to become a para because of her grandmother, who was a teacher in Mexico. Her main goal as a para is to help students succeed is getting them to graduate from high school.

She says, “the hardest thing about being a para is having to know everything about every subject that is taught, and helping students learn one of the hardest languages around.”

When Mrs. Escamilla isn’t helping students learn English, she enjoys singing in a choir, walking around town, and hanging out with her family.
