I am an atheist
[/quote]Not taking a poke at you, and in fact I would extend a hand of good faith welcome, but it might be wise to recognize that most on this board are religious.
Not suggesting this board is an echo chamber or that your views on religion are not valid topics for debate, but if you choose to bring up atheist versus religious topics, just be prepared for some substantial, and sometimes emotional and abrasive, responses. Just a caution, not meant to be uncivil in tone.
On a better note, I am (was) a teacher, high school math, physics, chemistry, and biology . . . and we have several other teachers here, most notably a gal whose screen name is ClassicalTeacher, and she has had by far more experience in the biz than the rest of us in that group.
She is still active in that vocation, I am not. Her views are certainly more current than mine. Additionally, she has experience in both private and public education, whereas my teaching experience was only with public schools, so her views are more comprehensive.
