Christiana Kraus

Christiana Kraus

Leadership Development Strategist

Christiana has been in public education for over 20 years in southern California as a teacher, administrator, and coach. She graduated from California State University Dominguez Hills with a bachelor’s of science in history and a master’s in physical education administration. She discovered her passion early on for guiding and supporting students to be their best as a college softball coach at Long Beach City College. As a teacher at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe Springs, California, she quickly found her calling working with the most at-risk population in the school. She once again realized that through fostering positive relationships with high expectations and accountability, these students could find academic and social success.

In 2007, Christiana attended a Capturing Kids’ Hearts Leadership Blueprint training, and has spent the past 10 years as a high school administrator. She saw the process truly change school and community cultures, and save lives and futures of kids. Christiana joined the Flippen Group in 2017.

She and her husband, Jose, are proud parents of two sons: Conner, who has a passion for the arts and media, and Colin, who is their miracle baby born at 24 1/2 weeks and is a train enthusiast.
