Hello my name is Cristopher Llamas. I am the North Thurston Public Schools ELL district wide para-educator. Currently my services are available to all of our students who’ve successfully exited the ELL program within the past two years. This position is new to our district, my goal for the 2018-19 school year is to provide the necessary literacy, reading and writing skills to help our students meet age appropriate academic achievement standards for grade promotion and graduation. I believe with the right education and advocacy every student has the potential to become an important contributor in our society. I am grateful to be a part of our NTPS ELL Languages program and team. My mother migrated from El Salvador and my family and I have been blessed with the opportunity to pursue higher education.
I became a newlywed this past August and happily married to my wife Jessica Llamas, who also is involved in education as a teacher at Paramount Christian Academy. I have graduated with a B.A. in theology from Christian Life College and plan to continue my education in ELL. I enjoy sports, traveling, hiking and spending time with my wife and family.
