Summer Camp 2015 Art and Science Lesson On Siberian Huskies

teacher chaz

 Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

Today Lucky the Siberian Husky visited EP1 Red here at Varee Chiangmai School in order to teach the children about his special adaptations which enable him to live in extreme cold weather conditions.


The children watched a video about Huskies, after which we discussed their special adaptations and then the children went on to draw and label Lucky’s body parts.

I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed teaching this double lesson with one of my best friends.

Kind regards……Teacher Chaz.

First thing that we have to say Thank You So Much for everything that you give for Banana NOEY. We still were remember for 4 years ago that when we came to inspect school for Kindergarten, the reason we were chooses Varee Chiang Mai School for her because during inspection we had been to see your English kid class with active board with Subject Giraffe that we still remembered your wording “Giraffe is short or Tall? All Child answered Tall.”, your class were really fun and all young child were pay attention because you had clearly and loudly with full motivate and nice voice for make all pupil easy to leaning and can answer your all questions . Your Teaching Processing made us to surprise that why all child looked happy and funny with your class. After that we are decided to bring her studding at this school and intend to choose for English Program for The Primary School too after we are known that you are be come to Primary School Teacher.

Sawasdee kha Teacher Chaz,
My name is Arm- Anchanika, Sun”s Mom.
I have decided to move Sun from Montfort Primary School to Varee School because Sun asked me, he wanted to study at the same school with his brother ans sister.
I knew Monfort education system but i do believe that Varee is much more suitable for him . Sun really likes the school environment building,etc. I first worried about his new classroom because he came late after school opened for 2 weeks. But I still believed he can adapted to his new school friends and environment.
Sun starts telling me a lot of stories when he came home about new school. He seems to enjoy it very much.His writing is surprised me and his English skilled is getting better everyday too. I think I made a good decision to move him to Varee.
Lastly, I really appreciated what you have taught him in the classroom.The way you teach him is so fantastic & different from any other teachers. for example , You show sample, let them learn, touch, and understand things. not just memorized it like the old school. I am so glad that Sun has you as a teacher.

He loves all his lessons and respects your methods. Norman understands how much progress he has made under your guidance and tuition. I hope when Norman moves up a year to EP2 there is a similar caliber teacher to continue his education and progress.
Why don’t you put in for promotion and move up a year and take the class with you, all your students and their parents would be very happy.

Hello Teacher Chaz. This is Jason and Jaxon’s Mom and Dad. We would like to express our appreciating for your hard work on improving the boy’s learning level. Their Mom, Ping is very happy seeing the boys progress and that they are enjoy learning. We know that in their early years it’s important that they get a solid academic foundation that they can build on. I’m sure the boys will appreciate what you’ve done for them later in their life.

Kind Regards,

08/12/2014 Creative Writing:
A year ago (while Roman was still in Kindergarten K3) I saw a similar exhibition of EP1 Red pupils and I was wondering if these documents were really independent work results by each individual pupil.
This year now following and observing Roman’s progress in English (he started from absolute Zero) I like to take the opportunity to express my gratitude and respect to Mr. Chaz for his engagement. He has the rare gift to motivate the students using a balanced mix of care and challenge. Beside Writing and Spelling it even impresses me more to see how Mr. Chaz encouraged the students in such a short time to express their thoughts, feelings and logic in connected sentences practizing a completely new language. Thank you, Mr. Chaz!

Kind regards,
Bernd Herrlach

Mr Berndt,
Thank you for your enthusiasm and faith in my abilities as an English teacher. It has been your support and guidance which has allowed Roman to do so well at school!
Thank you so very much for your beautiful comment. It is much more than I deserve.
Kind regards….Teacher Chaz.

By Ian Buxton (*Benji’s Grandfather)* EP1 Red pupil Class of 2012


I have had the pleasure to have known Chaz for around 4 years, when he was teaching Kindergarten students in the school my grandson Benji is a pupil. On the occasions I have seen him teach he has a great style which is received in a very positive and interactive way by his students.

Chaz went on to take the English Programme Primary 1 position as the years went on and when Benji was moving up from Kindergarten I requested that he was admitted to Teacher Chaz’s class. He spent a year with Chaz and I have to say Benji was motivated and interested in all the subjects especially in science.

For me it was a pleasure to hear Benji talk about Chaz’s classes and how good they were. Combined with Chaz’s teaching was some extra work me and Benji did at home, which sent my grandson to another educational level. The point I am making in these comments is the level of education he received from his Primary 1 class with Chaz.

Teacher Chaz’s passion for teaching is real, he is motivated, keen to help and really cares how his students perform. I was very pleased with teacher Chaz’s work with Benji and how he developed, and I wish Chaz all the success he deserves.

I understand he has improved his qualifications over the years but it’s not just about qualifications he has the gift, the gift to teach. He makes studying fun and interesting and the students respond accordingly.

Ian Buxton


Dear Ian,
The e-mail you have composed is in my opinion much, much more than I deserve.
Thank you so much!
Benji’s success in his English learning, is primarily down to YOUR dedication, passion and love for him. It has been you who has to be thanked for his educational success, not me.
I wish Benji and your family all the very best in life.
It has been my absolute pleasure to have known you and Benji!
Kindest regards and my best wishes….Teacher Chaz.

That was wonderful teacher. Thank you so much for lovely video. Would love to.see more in future ^-^ I can see lots of improvement especially in my daughter iqjot. Her self confidence improved alot. Every children seems able to speak and understand English very well in a short time of the first term, amazing ! Thank you so much once again kha ^-^

Iqjot has been listening to “Dora goes to school” since years but all she used to do was to see the pictures and listened to me while I read it out. Thanks to teacher chaz as now when I asked her to try reading…. she could easily read out the whole book ^-^ So glad that now my baby can read English story books. Excited to get her new one now ^-^ thank you once again ^-^

Dear Iqjot’s Mother,
I am so happy that Iqjot’s reading ability is continually increasing inside and outside of the classroom.

Thank you for your comment and I know Iqjot will continue to excel in both her English and Thai studies.

I am very excited to be her teacher in EP1 and I know she will make you and me very proud! Thank you and my kindest regards……Teacher Chaz.

Thank you so much and I hope she carries to love to come to school like this whole year through ^-^

Sorry I am not teaching ep2 next year

Chaz Teacher

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.

teacher Chaz

The ep1 red girls (Summer Camp 2014)


teacher Chaz

The ep1 red boys (Summer Camp 2014)

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.
