Welcome to Mr. Hoe's Homepage

Greetings, Chargers!

I'm excited to be joining the Bert Church community. I'll be working with students enrolled in Social 30-1, 30-2, 20-2, 10-1, and 10-2, and am eagerly ancitipating the journey as we navigate a truly historic period in our lives.

I was at Bow Valley High in Cochrane for fifteen years before moving over to "The East Side". I've also worked with Alberta Education during that time, marking Social Studies Diplomas, building Diploma exam test items, as well as working on technical review committees. Prior to teaching, I worked in the broadcast news industry, primarily with CTV and Global, as a reporter, producer, writer, and photographer. During most of that time I covered news, especially politics, including numerous federal, provincial, and municipal elections. I also covered sports, including hockey and football from the NHL/CFL on down. I have degrees from both the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta, along with a CTSR Broadcast Journalism diploma from SAIT. I'm also a proud alumnus of the Teachers Institute on Canadian Parliamentary Democracy in Ottawa.

You "may" already recognize me from...basketball games; I've been a referee for over twenty years, so Mr. Sera, Mr. Kirk, Mr. Ferguson, and I are well acquainted (in a good way). I'm pleased to be joining the Chargers' Volleyball Program as JV Boys Coach.

Learning is a different journey for everyone, and it is my goal to help each and every person find something every day to love about the study of our world and our societies, and to continue that love throughout their lifetime. Students today have 24/7/365 access to information; making a habit of consuming reliable and credible news is the single greatest thing students can do to ensure success (however it looks) in Social Studies, and for life.

I'm active on social media - follow my Instagram @hoemaster5000 for some humour, daily musings, and the odd thought-provoking meme :)
