About Chad

39, Physical Education Teacher from Miscouche, PEI

Tenacious and determined are the two qualities that best define CJ. An award winning physical educator, he is motivated by teaching his students to set and accomplish goals, with the hope that what they learn from him will inspire them to push themselves to their limits for their whole lives.

As a young man CJ was asked to join the navy, eventually training to take on the dangerous role of Navy diver. He has also trained for and completed triathlons and Ironman competitions. While his physical intelligence is a clear strength, his passion for music, at one point even performing as part of an Irish band, shows that CJ may just have some surprises up his sleeves.

A father, teacher and born leader, CJ is ready to apply his indefatigable energy to the challenge of Canada’s Smartest Person.
