I'm considering applying at a local Christian School, to teach secondary students (6-12). It is a Babtist school. The problem is this: I'm a very poor Christian. I was a member of a Babtist church... fifteen years ago, which is more than half my lifetime. I haven't gone to church since, although I still consider myself a Christian. I was saved, but I'm not immune to doubt, I am fairly liberal, and I'm not a Bible-literalist. I'm married (going on two years) with no children. I know being a good Christian as well as a good educator would probably be their top priorities in a teacher, but how evenly (or unevenly) are those two aspects valued? When teaching, I think it's appropriate to play the "devil's advocate" sometimes: is that acceptable? Are there some topics that would be entirely off limits? (I just spent the last quarter reading "It Happened to Nancy" [A true diary of a girl who was date-raped and infected with AIDs] with my 8th graders. I enjoyed the lessons, but could such things be read and discussed at a Christian school?) My question is for anyone who has experience with a Christian school. What could I expect at an interview? What might they ask of me? Would someone like me bleong there at all, or would they be seeking someone who looks more like this -> ?
