    If so, how do you share your faith in the classroom? What strategies have worked for you to allow students to hear truth in the classroom?

    Yes there are lots. In my school we have about 5/65. We encourage each other when it gets challenging and try to be kind but firm. Quite hard but you've gotta keep trying. Also, we will pray with each other if needed or with a student if the want.

    In my classroom I just try to model the right behavior even if I screw up one day.

    Teachers should not impose their faith ( regardless of what it is ) on vulnerable people ( children) who will simply accept anything told as being truth. It is an abuse of your position.

    Ever heard of the establishment clause? What you are doing is against federal law.

    'Hear truth'? Oh dear, I'm afraid that as an adult in a position of responsibility you should not impose your beliefs on those vulnerable young people you are in charge of. I'm not sure of the laws in America, being a U.K teacher, but it can be seen as a case of gross misconduct.
