Beth Hockman, M.S.
As an independent facilitator of Love and Logic, Beth teaches both parents and educators how to use this dynamic approach to create responsible, thoughtful young people. She has been teaching Love and Logic for 8 years and finds it incredibly rewarding. She loves providing families and educators with Love and Logic’s easy-to-learn techniques that provide immediate changes. She also uses Love and Logic in her parent coaching business.
Beth has been in the experiential education field for over 20 years. She has a B.S. in Social Psychology. And a M.S. in Experiential Education from Minnesota State University. Beth has worked for various adventure education programs including 18 years with Outward Bound in both the U.S. and Africa. She is one of the founders of Asheville TAASC, a youth based non-profit that combines the power of wilderness leadership and service learning into value forming experiences for young people. In 2016, inspired by her own twin girls, Beth along with Greg Gillett and Becky Barth started Girls TAASC, which is one of Beth’s greatest passions. She relishes in creating opportunities for girls to release the bonds of “perfection” that the social narrative languishes on young girls. And to find within wilderness education the freedom to be their own unique, strong, adventurous and authentic self.
Beth has taken her passion for experiential education into the public schools where she was a high school classroom teacher.

Using this innovate curriculum she acquired CITA/SACS accreditation for the academy.
