Gardner, James

Jim Gardner is known for going the extra mile–in more ways than one.
Jim taught experimental courses in “New Math” in the early 1960’s, worked on a provincial curriculum committee, belonged to O.M.C. and co-authored several secondary school mathematics textbooks.
He was a strong proponent of the University of Waterloo’s Co-operative Mathematics Teaching Program at the Carleton Board of Education.
Ottawa is home for Jim. He went to elementary and high school there, before getting his degrees at the University of Toronto. He taught at Peterborough C.I., and then at a number of Ottawa schools: Fisher Park C.I., Woodroffe H.S. and Bell H.S. At both Bell and Woodroffe, Jim was vice-principal and principal. He also taught sessional courses at Carleton and Queens Universities, and was a supervisory officer with the Carleton board.
Jim has been a volunteer with the National Gallery of Canada, has sung in various choirs and plays the bass violin.
He is also a running enthusiast, going that extra mile to complete the National Capital Marathon three times.
