Christina Fashanu MA, MTeach

Lecturer in Early Childhood

Summary

I am a lecturer in Early Childhood with a background in primary school teaching. 

I am currently undertaking a PhD that explores my particular interest in researching the communicative practices of young children in super-diverse, educational environments. 

  • About

    I trained as a teacher at Griffith University, Australia where I taught in primary schools. 

    I later returned to England and settled in Sheffield where I continued to teach in primary schools and I found my niche in year 1, teaching children from diverse backgrounds who speak multiple languages. 

    This experience was the inspiration for my doctoral research and I subsequently began a PhD at Sheffield University exploring the communicative practices of young children in super-diverse, educational environments. 


    Throughout my thesis journey I began to take on more teaching and supervision at Sheffield University which led to a position as an associate teacher there. In 2018 I joined the early childhood team at Sheffield Hallam University as a lecturer in Early Childhood.
