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
hes a really good teacher, like his class is hard and all but hes good. also very funny lol.
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.
other than the fact that he scares me he's a good teacher
Best teacher in the whole world
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 is an awesome teacher who actually explains everthing and helps you if you dont understand it. he is waaaayyyy better then ms jong!
very very very good teacher WAY BETTER THAN MS. JONG. He knows everything and teaches you all of it. Great teacher!!!!!
He expects you to know information you don't... but then teaches it.
Probably the best teacher I have ever had and ever will have. I learned way more from him than any other teacher. I will admit it was incredibly hard but the workload really helped prepare for high sc
You learn so much in his class. high school science is simple after his classes
only class where i actually learn stuff. he really knows his stuff but most of the time i have no idea what he's talking about... great teacher though
best teacher at deer park other than mr. healy. taught me a lot
Hes okay but sometimes can get off topic. Also sometimes not really clear on what we should do. Funny though.
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.
He's a great science teacher but sometimes can talk on and on about something completely different.
Great guy! The thing I love the most about his class was that no class was ever the same, even if he was teaching the same thing. very cool, funny, random, and you learn so much from him.
Takes science very seriously. He's very nice, but once he made me say "science is the most important thing in my life"
He can be very obnoxious and really mean. His classes are very hard.
You rock Mr.Hockin!!!It was soo much fun learning the "Philosophy of Science" with you!!!
Greatest Science teacher ever! I've learned so much in his class.
He is a totally amazing teacher!!!! He is really into his subject, and that reflects well on his teaching!
mr hockin is a hard marker & sometimes moves the class too fast but hes pretty cool & his experiments r fun! in gr.7 we blew up coke on the ceiling & brought in an xmas tree and strung popcorn on it!!
cool, drinks a lot of coffee and science is his whole world. if you listen in his class, don't talk and respect him it's really easy to get an 80 but it's also really easy to fail, like the majority..
awsome teacher! we do the funnest htings in that class!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
tough marker (aka its right or its wrong) very fair knows the material better than anyone!
Mr.Hockin is the best BEST BEST science teacher ever Ever EVER!!!!!! Love ya!

diamond joe... great teacher, but stop mumbling to yourself, funny and all, but it makes you look like your mad
We all know how Mr. Hockin loves my cinnomin buns! lol i just make him like a basket for end of the year...
How can he be rated bad? He is a great teacher. But HE does look like a mad scientist. LOL. Love his advisory!!!

Bill Nye + Bill Murray = Joe Hockin. Wow, this guy makes science AWESOME! Cardboard boats never looked so good!!!! Hockin 4ever!

"Diamond" joe is simply cool he is not only a great teacher movie star (the rumors are true)
