I am Shawn Houle and I was born and raised in the countryside of New Hampshire, USA. I graduated from Chester College of New England in 2007 and taught in Moscow, Russia for 11 years in Nurseries and Kindergartens. For my entire career I have been working with multicultural children in classrooms as a home teacher and English as a Foreign Language teacher from Pre-Nursery to Year 1 (ages 1.5-7 years old).
This is currently my third year teaching at The First Steps following two years working in Rising 2s. I always create a warm and inviting environment where all children feel safe and can be themselves. Each day is fun and active and includes various short and dynamic activities covering all areas of learning and meeting the needs of different learning styles.
