Dr. Hundley spends the majority of her time teaching and working with students in general education classes. “I want my students to have the most rewarding experience possible in our general education courses. I hope they leave my classroom with a better understanding of the earth and earth processes, which will guide them in their future decision making.” In 2014 Dr. Hundley was one of twelve Wright State faculty selected to participate in teacher training for the new Student Success Center. This new building focuses on Student Centered Active Learning Environments for Undergraduate Programs or SCALE-UP classrooms. Dr. Hundley currently teaches The Dynamic Earth (EES 1050) and The Sustainable Earth (EES 1070) in this new innovative, technology-friendly building.
In 2011, Dr. Hundley received the General Education Excellence in Teaching Award for excellence in promoting General Education learning objectives.
