I have a Diploma in Egyptology from Oxford College in England and a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University.  I’ve been to Egypt three times on personalized, educational tours.

As a certified school substitute, I make the day more enjoyable - if it works out - by bringing an ancient Egyptian antiquity into the classroom, whether I'm teaching language arts, social studies, science, consumer economics, art or Native American studies.

I think you'll agree that The Egyptian Room is an attractive, fun and inspiring place to learn.
