Mrs. Maribel Hokanson (Grades 5-6)
As a child I persuaded (forced) my brother and sister to play school with me. Back then you could get all the extra copies of math, reading, English and science worksheets from your teacher at the end of the school year. So my brother and sister became my students and our walk-in closet my school room. I had a blast. Lighting a fire, sparking an interest, or fanning the flame of learning is still a blast. Thanks to UW-Whitewater, where I became certified as a teacher, I was able to pursue teaching as a career. I have taught in public school, home school and private school. My husband and five children have always been supportive of my teaching, and I have had the added privilege of being my childrens' teacher both at home and at the Baldwin Christian School and of watching four of my five children graduate from BCS. God has faithfully directed me through life and I count on Him to continue the good work which He began in me long, long ago. See Philppians 1:6. My hope and prayer is that your child will grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man (Luke 2:52) while he or she is at BCS and that I may be a help and witness of that growth!
