Faculty Focus

Sara Baillie

Associate Professor of Special Education, Director of the Graduate Programs in Education

Sara Baillie wants all her students to come away from her courses with the experience of how to think through a situation in an ethical manner. “Many of the courses that I teach are about behavior analysis ethics and special education law. With that, I am lucky enough to push students to see a situation from a different perspective. I get to examine, explore, and ponder with students about how to deal with difficult situations.”
