Gender Differences – Betsy Hoke, National Montessori Speaker
Betsy Hoke earned her AMI Montessori teaching credentials from the Maria Montessori Training Organization in London, England and is also certified by AMS for early childhood education. She taught for seven years in Colorado before joining the Montessori School of Evergreen as the director and part-time teacher in 1980. She bought the school from its founders three years later and led it from a small children’s house program to a school of 320 students serving 2 1/2-year-olds through middle school. After retiring from the Head of School position in 2009, she worked as a Montessori consultant. Currently, she is the philosophy and classroom leadership instructor at Montessori Education Center of the Rockies, a training program for Montessori teachers. Ms. Hoke speaks at national Montessori conferences and is a trainer for the Gurian Institute. Michael Gurian, New York Times best-selling author, founded the Institute to help boys and girls reach their full potential by providing professional development that increases student achievement, teacher effectiveness and parent involvement. The mother of a daughter and son in their mid-twenties, she has lived with the gender differences at home and at work.
