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.

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 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.

Varee Chiangmai International School, Primary Sports Day with EP1 Red (January 2016)

Chaz Teacher

Dear EP1 Red VCIS parents and guardians,

Today was the Varee Chiangmai International School primary sports day.

Below are a few images of the winners.

Kru Kae and I are extremely proud!!!

Tomorrow the children of ep1 red will be going to the 700 year stadium to support and cheer for the participants. There will be a cheer leading pageant, dance choreography competition, teachers’ races, school parade and much much more.

The children will not need to bring their big school bags nor their learning materials.

Could parents please ensure that their child comes to school with a small bag (not their usual big school bag), some pocket money and 3 small bottles of water.

Parents are welcome to join in the fun from 3pm.

Finally the whole day is expected to end at around 5pm, so we would like parents and guardians to pick up their children from the 700 year stadium at this time.

It would be a good idea to come maybe about 40 minutes before this time.

Kind regards…teacher Chaz.

Sorry I am not teaching ep2 next year (2015)


Dear EP1 Red Parents and Guardians,

I have received e-mails from some of you asking why I am not teaching EP2 next academic year, as it has been presumed this will be the case.

I am very flattered that parents are excited to hear that I will be teaching their child for a second year but unfortunately this is not the case.

I have also had e-mails from parents asking why their child will not be in the EP1 Summer Camp Programme.



Varee Chiangmai School Summer Camp 2015

This is because your children will be progressing on to EP2 very soon, so they will be in the EP2 Summer Camp Programme.

Finally, I will be involved in the Varee Chiangmai School Summer Camp however, I will be teaching my new class of  ‘2015’, EP1 Red pupils.

Again I am very flattered that I have been contacted by you with these questions.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Kind regards………….Teacher Chaz.
