Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
Students will learn several important things in the pottery class.
1. The most important archaeological terms associated with ancient pottery, in general. 
2. How to appreciate pottery-making as a functional, decorative and ritual artform.
3. The basic steps in making pottery, especially in prehistoric times when pottery was one of the earliest inventions in the world.
4. Specific characteristics of ancient Egyptian pottery during specific historical periods.
I hold a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University and, in June, I will receive my Diploma in Egyptology for a one-year program from Oxford College in England.  And 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 object into the classroom, whether I'm teaching language arts, social studies, science, consumer economics, art or even Native American studies.

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 for a class.  I think you'll agree that The Egyptian Room is an attractive, fun and inspiring place to learn.  And, please, if you like, call me Ms. Sennuwy - my chosen ancient Egyptian name.
