Dear Parents and guardians,
My name is Teacher Chaz and I am the English Programme primary 1 teacher (first grade) for EP1 Red, here at Varee Chiangmai School.
I have worked at Varee Chiang Mai School for over 8 years now.
I started working at Varee Chiang Mai School within the Kindergarten department where I was a teacher, for in excess of 2 years.
Many parents may already be familiar with me because I would have taught their child before.
I am now coming towards the end of my sixth year teaching as an English programme homeroom teacher.
My passion is the English language, especially creative writing and poetry.
I would just like to say, that I am incredibly grateful for all of the support and comments I have received, from ep1 red parents and guardians during these past 5 years!
I am from the United Kingdom.

I am an interdisciplinary educator who facilitates my pupils to make their own connections between all the subjects I teach.
I teach English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health, Career and Technology, Information Technology and Art to the same class of children.
My pedagogical ethos has always been to create stimulating lessons which, not only hold the interest of the children I teach but also empower them with confidence, so that they can then carry out tasks as individuals, or in groups with minimal guidance.
I constantly engage my pupils in a variety of different ways and to achieve this I avoid the over reliance on a single ‘learning theory’ or indeed teaching approach, as I sincerely believe I would be restricting their educational development by doing so.

The ultimate premise behind all of my teaching is that my pupils, will be able to take and apply what they have learnt in my classroom, to then help them continue to learn new skills and concepts in others.

‘I truly, madly and deeply love teaching and I find every single working day to be an immensely satisfying, extremely rewarding and tremendously challenging experience!’
I am very proud and honoured to have worked at Varee Chiangmai School for such a long and hugely enjoyable time.

I am especially proud of and astounded by the creative writing my pupils have produced independently, every year.

I am extremely familiar with the University of Cambridge Young Learners ESOL examinations, for which I have successfully prepared my past pupils for, and whom have achieved outstanding results.
(These assessments were carried out by an external team of Cambridge ESOL examiners.)
I am exceptionally proud of my pupils, whom have achieved so highly in the Cambridge English Young Learners’ Assessments.
‘To be able to teach my pupils to a globally recognised standard and for them to achieve so highly in these assessments, has been one of the many high points of my teaching career!!!’
I will always do my very best to ensure that my students continue to learn English in fun and varied ways.

Kind regards……Teacher Chaz.
