This is not an easy question to answer. As a general rule of thumb, "está" is typically used for temporary states of being, such as "Ella está aquí" (she is here right now). "Es" is used for permanent states of being, such as "Ella es mujer" (she is a woman, and always will be). However, this rule has many exceptions.

I have a particular set of skills, but keeping track of my daughter is not one of them.
