Early Field Experiences (EFE)


Early field experiences are required hours in the classroom or educational setting completed prior to student teaching.  Each program requires a minimum number of early field experiences and has designed specific early field experiences to prepare you for your culminating student teaching experience.  Candidates who do not successfully meet the program’s required hours of early field experience will not be permitted to student teach.
