Your poem effectively shows what Christian teachers are up against in the publicschools. I used to teach in the elementary grades, but I worked in Christian schools all but one year, so I did not face these problems as much.

One mistake I noted was the use of "their" for "they're" in the line, "What their looking for." It's the teacher in me! :)

Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking piece on the difficulties of sharing God in a secular setting. I'm glad you showed that our lives can be a testimony, though! It reminds me of the saying, "Preach the gospel at all times. If necessary, use words!"
