Rachel Hogan is a master’s student at the University of Kansas, studying Global and International Studies. Her previous degree was in Linguistics and modern Hebrew, where she researched language documentation and revitalization for dead and dying language. Her current research emphasis examines the characteristics, practices, policies, and effectiveness of Jewish and Arab education and testing systems in Israel. Rachel finds particular joy in the classroom, where she can either explore or teach the curiosities that human existence has to offer. Previously, she has taught modern Hebrew, historical linguistics, and globalization classes. Beyond academia, she has worked for an immigration company and as a tour guide for an ancient Jewish tabernacle replica. In the future, she hopes to continue her education through a doctorate program and, ultimately, wants to work as a professor. When she is not working, researching, or attending classes, Rachel enjoys playing basketball, reading nonfiction, and going on road trips.
