Dear EP1 Red VCIS, Parents and guardians,

My name is Teacher Chaz

I am the English Programme first grade teacher for EP1 Red, here at Varee Chiangmai International School.



I have worked at Varee Chiangmai International School for over 8 years now.

I started working at Varee Chiangmai International School within the Kindergarten department where I was a teacher, for in excess of 2 years.


Many parents will already be familiar with me because I would have taught their child before.

I will soon be embarking upon my seventh consecutive year, teaching as an English programme homeroom teacher.

My passion is the English language, English Literature and especially Creative Writing.

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 over these past 6 years!



I was born raised and educated in the United Kingdom…

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, as they progress on at Varee Chiangmai International School.

‘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 International 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.

Most of the children who enter into ep1 red, begin with no English language knowledge or ability whatsoever. This includes being unfamiliar with the alphabet and basic phonics.

Please click below to view their imaginative works!

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 success.

(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.

Finally, I am always available to talk to during school hours so, if you have any questions, comments or concerns about your child then, please do not hesitate to approach me as I will be happy to help you!

Halloween Activities at Varee Chiangmai International School 2015

Dear EP1 Red VCIS parents and guardians,

Next Friday the 30th of October 2015 the children of EP1 will be involved in fun Halloween activities here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

We would like the children to arrive to school (early) already wearing their Halloween costumes and makeup, so they are all prepared to participate in the ‘scary’ games we have in store for them.

Could the children please have their school uniform packed in their school bags also, just in case.

The Halloween activities will commence after the children’s milk break at 1:45 pm.

Classes will run as normal during the morning and early afternoon class periods.

Finally we think the children would have much more fun if they were able to bring in some sweets/candy to go ‘trick or treating’ with and maybe also a small basket to store and collect their sweets/candy in.
