Hello everyone, my name is Jason Hong and I am currently a high school chemistry teacher in Calgary. I teach at a very academic school, with my classes usually being IB classes. I also am the debate and Model UN coach at the school and we have had an incredibly successful year. I decided to include a picture that we took at the UN General Assembly this March. I am a huge believer in the work that the UN does.
This is my second MET course and I am pretty excited about the material coming up. I have a really diverse set of interests and take up new hobbies all the time. I mentioned the following list in a prior course but wanted to bring it up again: I play a lot of video games, own hundreds of dollars worth of tabletop games, I build Lego and Gundam kits, I go scuba diving in the summer and skiing in the winter. And of course, I love all the advancements in technology that help me pursue all of these interests and hobbies! We live in an exciting time where innovation is present in every industry and I am excited to be in the pilot seat through our 522 program.
