Dr. Dan Hochman
Dual Credit and AP Environmental Science Teacher
Hello! I am Dr. Dan Hochman. I live here on the island with my girlfriend and 12-year-old Austin Middle School student. I have spent the majority of my life either in school or teaching school, which makes me a school expert!! LOL! I truly enjoy learning and imparting knowledge to others. Knowledge truly is power, especially in this age of a constant barrage of information. I obtained my Master’s Degree from the University of Maryland in Environmental Science and Forest Ecology and my PhD from our own UTMB in Environmental Toxicology. In between I attended University of Houston for my teaching certification program. I have taught at University of Maryland, Texas A&M Galveston, San Jacinto College, and Ball High. I am privileged to teach future stewards of our environment college level Environmental systems. It is a rigorous course that covers a lot of ground but the students enjoy understanding the world around them.
