Principal - Hilaria "LaLa" Ruiz
Hilaria Ruiz has served as principal at Worth Heights, Manuel Jara and H. V. Helbing elementary schools. Within Fort Worth ISD, she has held the positions of assistant principal, instructional specialist, classroom teacher and elementary school secretary. She can honestly say that she has thoroughly enjoyed all of her positions with the District. She completed her master's degree and mid-management certification at Texas Wesleyan University.
“I love my job and look forward to retiring from the District when I am no longer effective and/or when I come to the conclusion that it’s time for me to hang my hat because I have lost my passion to serve students and teachers,” she said.
