My name is Mark Hoekstra and I have been teaching and coaching for 24 years. This is my 16th year in the Carlisle district. Previously I taught and coached in the Carl Junction school district in Carl Junction, MO. I graduated with a Bachelors degree from Buena Vista in 1996 and with a Masters degree from Pittsburg State in 1997.
Here at Carlisle I teach Weight Training classes, I am the head football coach and I am an assistant track coach.
