Early Field Experiences


The Early Field Experiences (EFE) office is located within the Department of Field Services.

The role of EFE is to coordinate the required field experiences necessary, prior to student teaching, for teacher certification.  Field experiences are placements in which teacher candidates may observe and facilitate teaching practices in both private and public school systems.  We partner with schools in Lancaster, York, Lebanon, and occasionally Berks and Chester counties. 

An overview of the Department of Field Services, including the Placement Policy, is available on the Field Services home page in both A Guide for Field Experiences and the FAQ-Field Services.  Students are responsible for this information.  Visit:  Department of Field Services-Home

Important information regarding field experiences is discussed during the first few weeks of each academic semester during classroom visits and is available in the Department of Field Services office.  Placements are distributed by the EFE office in advance of field placements during each semester.  Additional information is available in the Field Services office, Stayer Hall, Room 120.
