Wendy has been awarded a prestigious, university-wide Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. These awards are presented each year to graduate students who demonstrate best practices in undergraduate teaching. Graduate students are honored for creating learning environments that inspire and challenge their students to actively engage in the classroom experience. The tough competition for these awards reveals that Duke continues to enjoy a vibrant culture that values exceptional teaching — a deeply rooted part of the Duke experience. Wendy has been an exemplary teacher, as testified by the evaluations of her students in Biology and Conservation of Sea Turtles. Congratulations to an outstanding teacher!
