Welcome to 5B!

Our school-wide theme is Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

As a class we will be embracing this storyline: "Your works are wonderful." This concept will be woven throughout our curricular units as we discover the amazing ways God has designed the creation and how, out of his immense love for us, he reveals himself.

A Little About Myself...

Welcome to my website! My name is Mrs. Bakker. Since graduating from Dordt University in 2004, I married Matt Bakker, taught at Christian schools in New York and Minnesota, and traveled the world. Matt and I have been challenged and streched by 6 relocations (New York, Minnesota, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Manitoba) including 8 different homes! We have three girls. Our two oldest are at the collegiate and our youngest is in grade 4.  I am excited to be on the Calvin team again this year. My favourite subjects to teach are science and math.

Back when I was in grade 5 I loved sports (and still do)! Sitting in a desk was my least favourite activity. I try to mix a lot of movement into the school day. I am thankful for three recess breaks at Calvin, in addition to PE, morning run and intramurals most days of the week!
