Wendy Ward Hoffer, PEBC’s Senior Director of Content Development and Publications, believes that math education is an important lever for civil rights activism. She designs and presents professional learning for teachers at all levels and across the curriculum focused on creating learning opportunities that honor students’ thinking. Wendy, a proud nerd, is the author of five books on teaching for understanding and the co-creator of PEBC’s math and science institutes, as well as many of our newest online courses.
Prior to her work with PEBC, Wendy taught middle school math and science at Expeditionary Learning schools, where she earned National Board Certification. Originally from Los Angeles, Wendy is the daughter of an immigrant, attended Dartmouth College, and earned her masters degree in education from Stanford University.
Wendy loves to swim, sing in Sanskrit, crush the New York Times mini-crossword and, above all, spend time with her teenage children.
Moker Klaus-Quinlan partners with teachers, teams, schools, and districts through coaching, facilitation, and professional learning. Relentlessly asset-focused, she has worked with K-12 educators across all content areas, in Colorado and nationally, since 2003. . She leads the Effective Mentoring & Coaching Institute, co-facilitates the Math Institute, and is a designer/instructor for PEBC’s 45-hour CLDE relicensure course. She brings her experience teaching elementary and middle school, serving as a reading specialist, ELL/CLD coordinator, mentor teacher, instructional coach, and adjunct professor. Co-leader of PEBC’s Equitable Practices Initiative, Moker is passionate about engaging educators in the pursuit of student agency and equity and facilitating learning around culturally responsive/sustaining education practices.
Moker achieved National Board Certification in Early Adolescent English/Language Arts. She earned a Master’s degree in K-12 Literacy from California State University, and a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from Brown University. Moker loves rooting for her daughters at their sporting events and listening to audiobooks while walking her dogs.
Optional Lab Day on Friday, December 8
Join us after the Institute to observe effective math instruction live and in person in a PEBC lab classroom. You will enjoy an artfully facilitated half day of learning, including a pre-brief with the lab host teacher, a full lesson observation, an opportunity to debrief and ask questions, lunch onsite, and most importantly, identifying tactical take-aways that you can implement in your own school or classroom the following week.
