Things You May Not Know About Letty Kraus
Incoming CCSESA Statewide Arts Initiative Director

Zinnias are Letty’s favorite flower.

Letty Kraus, our incoming CCSESA Statewide Arts Initiative Director, comes with a wealth of work in education. Formerly an administrator at the California Department of Education, Letty led state committees to complete the 2019 Arts Standards and the 2020 Arts Education Framework. She has worked at all levels, including working as a performing arts teacher in the Elk Grove USD and as Director of Professional Development Programs for the History Project at UC Davis. We asked Letty some questions and here are some things you may be interested to learn about her.

  • Nick name: Letty is my nickname from Nuvoletta. My father is the only person that uses my full name.
  • Favorite food: Brie, and Celery. But not together.
  • Least favorite food: Liver, mortadella, and water chestnuts. Please never make me eat those things.
  • International travel: My husband first introduced me to Europe by piloting a barge through canals in France. We then went to Volksfest in Stuttgart. We have done this several times now in different places, usually ending with Volksfest. In 2017 we went to Iceland for a photography class and learned how to photograph the Aurora, glaciers, and small icebergs on the beach. We have also had interesting and fun times in the UK.
  • Pets: Jack, a “minpin” mixed with a chihuahua, is a little guy we share with my mother-in-law who is also my neighbor. He looks like a tiny deer. His favorite form of exercise and expression is parkour. His favorite pastime is getting petted, followed by stealing and hiding food people leave on the table or kitchen island.
  • Hobbies: All things pen and paper. Planners. Watercolor. If you need to borrow a pen, I have one, but you will need to specify what kind and color.
  • One of the craziest things you have done: I am too embarrassed to answer this question.
  • First concert: Mountain Aire 1984. At the time I was, like, “who are these REM people? Whatever!”
  • Favorite movie(s): Singin’ in the Rain and Guys and Dolls. These movies remind me of high school musical and jazz choir experiences.
  • Pet peeve: Dishonesty.
  • A student that stands out: All my former Jackman Middle School students and the many lessons they taught me while I thought I was teaching them history and dance.  
  • A couple of memorable teaching experiences: Whilst in front of my students teaching Physical Education one morning (they assigned the class to me because I had a credential authorization to teach dance, so why not?) a seagull deposited a dropping on my shirt. We all gasped, then broke out in laughter, and then I ran for the locker room. When I came back, my students were still sitting right there in roll-call order. They told no one. It was our secret. 

    Also, as a history teacher I was paired with Cathee vanRossem-St.Clair, an artist who teaches students about caring and fragility through egg painting. We worked together to come up with a way to connect our very different subject matter. We ultimately combined her approach and lessons with my lessons about elections and the students produced eggs with political messages and participated in a mock statewide election. It was amazing and I still have one of those eggs.
  • Favorite flower or plant: I love my zinnias. They are colorful, hardy, adaptable, and re-seed in random places with new color variations every year.
  • Last book read: The Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson. It is a work of fiction but chillingly adjacent to climate issues we are experiencing.
  • One thing she is hopeful about for 2022-23: The continued expansion of arts education for California’s students.

Welcome, Letty!

CCSESA Arts Creativity at the Core – Module 12: Leadership in Arts Education

We want to share that the CCSESA Arts Creativity at the CoreModule 12: Leadership in Arts Education, developed by the Los Angeles Office of Education and the Riverside County Office of Education, is now on the CCSESA Statewide Arts Initiative web site. This module was re-envisioned to align with the CA Arts Standards and the CA Arts Education Framework. 

Louisa Higgins (Riverside COE) and Jeannine Flores (LACOE) worked over many months to provide education leaders, at every level, practical skills, and tools to establish sustainable arts education programming in schools.  Click here to access the module.

This module is a result of collaborative work from leaders across California and represents key information that will assist leaders in strengthening and expanding arts education in their educational settings.  I am especially grateful for the opportunity to work with Louisa Higgins on this major project and we hope many leaders will benefit from the resources in the module.”

-Jeannine Flores

The module progresses through an overview of Arts Education in CA and then provides webinars by different arts education leaders that can be used/customized for a variety of educational purposes.  Topics covered include the following:

  • An Administrator’s Guide to Arts Advocacy
  • Cultural Responsiveness in Arts Education 
  • Arts Integration Leadership
  • Arts Partnerships
  • Leadership Development through Creative Action Planning

A major feature of the module is the “Take Five for Arts Ed” video interviews with many arts and education leaders from across the state of California. You can access the YouTube playlist under downloads along with the Handout which provides a listing of the featured interviews.  Some of our County Superintendents of Schools are included in the video list.  You won’t want to miss these compelling interviews. Click here to access the Take Five for Arts Ed videos.

“The significant role of the arts in our education system is apparent more than ever. It is widely recognized how the arts create powerful school engagement for students and make the pedagogies of cultural relevance, social and emotional learning and universal design for learning come alive. This collection of practical tools made available via a variety of modalities; webinars, slides, downloads and handouts were designed to make overseeing a dynamic and successful arts program a reality for all administrators.”

– Louisa Higgins

Congratulations to Jeannine, Louisa, and to all the consultants and contributors to the module.

Learning Acceleration: Theory to Practice Sessions or Communities of Practice

As California’s schools emerge from the pandemic and educators prepare for a new school year, it is time to refocus our efforts back onto teaching and learning. As arts educators, it is important that we find seats at the table when discussing our students’ academic learning. The California County Superintendents Educational Services Association has partnered with the New Teacher Project to provide educational leaders, educators, and staff opportunities to apply Learning Acceleration theory to practice in a community of practice model (CoP). 

Bringing the arts into the discussion for accelerating student learning is a great opportunity to explore systems of support and the importance of arts education for CA students as part of a complete, comprehensive, and holistic education.

Seats still available! Register today! See flyer linked here for details.

Tulare County Office of Education

Highway 99 Arts Film Series

Along the Highway 99 corridor, amid the vast farmlands of Central California, the arts are not only alive, but they are thriving! Filled with local arts, culture, and beauty, the stories of the region are as rich as the soil. Yet, media reports and press about this region of the state often focus on the deficits facing the area, perpetuating negative stereotypes about “the valley.” 57 of California’s 58 counties are rural, which includes the 6 counties (Fresno, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced and Tulare) of Region 7. These six county offices of education serve more rural students than any other region of the state. However, time and again, the region is skipped over by foundations and large corporations for grants and other capital investments. Grassroots efforts in the region are fruitful, but increased and sustainable funding and partnerships could make an even larger impact in area schools and districts.

Seeing the challenges as an opportunity, the Region 7 CISC Arts subcommittee aims to turn the negative narrative around by highlighting the assets of this culturally diverse part of the state through a new public will campaign. Dubbing their new project the Highway 99 Arts Initiative, the group worked with local production team, Fenceline Media, to create seven short films highlighting the assets, partnerships, and youth voices that make the central portion of California unique. The region 7 team hopes that these short films will inspire funders, foundations, and businesses to consider investing their time and resources into ensuring that the arts continue to thrive along Highway 99.

National Endowment for the Arts

From the NEA website: As families and educators ready children to go back to school, the National Endowment for the Arts recognizes the important role of arts education in educating, engaging, and empowering youth, while also supporting the social and emotional learning needs of students, helping them to succeed both in and out of school.

“The arts can play a crucial role for students and educators, especially in addressing healing and trauma. Through research we know that participation in the arts can support the social and emotional learning needs of students, including teaching emotional regulation and compassion for others. They can also provide an outlet for students to process their emotions following trauma so they can begin the healing process and build resiliency.”

– From Nancy Daugherty’s blog post The Importance of Heading Back to School with Arts Education.

More information on NEA’s website on the benefits of arts education on wellness, resources that can support the advancement arts education in communities across the country, and stories and interviews on the ways arts education can provide students with outlets for expression and growth, while also helping to close the opportunity gap and help students thrive are linked here.
