He is very knowledgeable! Just pay attention in his class because your tests are open-book so you want to have all of the notes so you can get the marks that you deserve! If you aren't paying attention, he will most likely call on you so just be prepared and always do your grade 7 graphs correctly!!1

His teacher style is very different but he's definitely the best teacher I've had to date. Don't be fooled by the low rating, he's a difficult teacher but more than worth it.

Writing this from high school after having J-Hoc, trust me, he's an amazing teacher. The things he teaches give you a huge advantage in the following years, and you'll already know a lot of the content. His style is great too, he clearly loves what he does. Pay attention in his class, you'll thank yourself a few years later.

Mr. Hockin is a good guy but a hard teacher. he uses advanced concepts that most of the class doesn't grasp. he didn't know my name until Christmas and i sit in the front row and raise my hand for everything. he also shows clear favorites. my brother went to the school 6 years ago and he is still doing the exact same lesions! he is obviously very knowledgeable and has good intentions though...

One of the best teachers I've ever had. He teaches advanced concepts and phenomenon that are far above the grade level standard yet it's simple to understand. He also structures out his plan for teaching perfectly. Every new thing he teaches has something to do with previous lessons and it all correlates together. This may not be everyone's view as he teaches in a somewhat obscure way. But, I am confident that everyone who has had Mr. Hockin will appreciate his teachings sometime in the future.

He has some issues of explaining what he wants us to do, and what something is about, since he gets off topic or thinks aloud easily.
