Impact the mind, body,
and soul of students

Special Education

As a pre-service teacher, you will be prepared to cultivate relational peace, educational equity, and justice for all children and to impact the mind, body, and soul of each student through excellence in teaching.

Special Education majors must also complete another major leading to a second certificate. Prior to student-teaching, you will participate in field experiences in a variety of settings and grade levels that will prepare you for the realities of the teaching profession.

Faculty Focus

Sara Baillie

Assistant Professor of Special Education; Director of the Graduate Program in Special Education-Behavior Intervention Specialist

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.”
