Weren't the ancient Egyptians the first to domesticate cats? Actually no. But the Egyptians were the first to draw them as pets. Let's thank the Egyptian/African Wildcat: the cat of all domesticated felines right down to your very own.

I hold a Diploma in Egyptology from Oxford College in England and a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University. And I’ve been to Egypt three times on personalized, educational tours.  I am also a certified substitute teacher in the New Mexico and New Hampshire public school systems.

I've been captivated by ancient Egypt since I was 10 years old.  And I feel it's my destiny to share my enthusiasm for and expertise on this beautiful and brilliant 5000-year-old civilization with all of you.  I hope to see you soon in this class.  I think you'll agree that The Egyptian Room is an attractive, fun and inspiring place to learn.
