Not sure what to say?

Great teacher. Loved having him in 1957. Sorry to hear of his passing

Mr. Vaz prepared me for college more,than any other teacher. He taught me how to think, and organize my thoughts. When I became a Jr. High teacher, many of my teaching techniques were modeled after him. Class of 1976.

You were a gift to us Mr. Vaz. Class of 1958.

Mr. Vaz will always be known as one of San Leandro High School's best! Class of 1982!

Mr. Vaz was a GREAT teacher, he made learning fun. I tell my kids about him. class of 82

I had your sweet dad he was a great can tell his heart was in teaching...sorry for your loss

One of the few teachers that really encouraged us to communicate on a higher level. Thank you, sir.

Mr. Vaz was my teacher in my senior year ('64 -'65). A consummate gentleman in manner and attire. A thoughtful and inspiring teacher.

Mr. Vaz will always be remembered as one of our best and brightest.
