O'Hara, Peter

One of Peter O'Hara's colleagues wrote, “Mathematics is Peter's passion, and helping to excite kids and colleagues about mathematics, making them better problem solvers, is a big part of his life.”
Peter's c.v. contains a long list of ways he has been involved in promoting excellence in mathematics, including service on various Canadian Mathematics Competition problems committees, working with secondary school
students at the University of Western Ontario, conducting problem solving workshops, and speaking at professional development events.
Peter grew up in London, Ontario, where he attended Oakridge S.S. and the University
of Western Ontario. He has taught for 27 years, the last nine at Glendale H.S. in Tillsonburg.
Apart from his work on mathematical enrichment, he has coached high school hurdles and golf, directed the school prefect organization, and served on various teacher committees in the schools. In the community he has been active in golf and curling.
Peter and his wife Susan have three children, a daughter and two sons.
