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.”
