I guess they don’t teach about holes in the ground in Georgraphy — because this teacher doesn’t seem to know her a— from one of those things.
She is not there because of what she knows. She is there because of who she is.

Dr. Rachel SlocumThe UW-L Geography and Earth Science Department is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Rachel Slocum to our faculty beginning with the 2010 Fall Semester.
Rachel has a B.A. from McGill University in Montreal where she studied Political Science and Developing Area Studies. She spent several years in Niger, West Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer and then in Washington D.C. working on international development policy before going to Clark University for an M.A. in International Development and Social Change. Working first with Dianne Rocheleau for her M.A., she remained at Clark to get her Ph.D. in Geography under the supervision of David Angel.
When not attached to her laptop or doing fieldwork, Rachel likes knitting, yoga, running, reading fiction and enjoying the city with her significant other, Arun. And when the season permits, she loves to garden. She plans to construct a rain garden, plant flowers and grasses native to the praire and grow lots of vegetables.
