RE: HELLO :)
I definitely keep my religious views (or the lack of religious views) to myself in the classroom, as it should be. My focus is to give students multiple perspectives and allow them to make their own decisions. Have any idea what cities around the USA are good ones to teach without fear of retribution? I heard Madison, WI is a good one. I visited there once and loved it. I'd have to admit, I am a mountain girl.

RE: HELLO :)
Well, then you'll like this, even though it sounds weird. Utah. Preferably directly in Salt Lake City, or maybe Park City. Yeah, I know, Mormon capital of the world. Oddly though, it's also a very non-religious city. Almost as if there are two factions, religious and openly publicly non-religious (even anti-religious). I suppose the non-religious are rebelling.

In any case, I know many atheists locally and they're out and vocal about it and none of them have been fired for it (or anything else like drummed up bogus reasons).

We have lots of mountains, and lots of elementary kids. Win-win for you.

Side note: Once you get out of the Salt Lake county and into the more rural Utah towns all bets are off - there it's Mormon way or the highway.

Wow, I would definitely think Oregon rather than Utah! Maybe if I head out west I would give it a look. Thanks.

In Seattle, 1 in 4 people are atheists and the number of non-religious is higher. Plus if you're gay you can get married, or if not that, you can legally smoke pot. Smokin

And there are mountains. The problem is they can rarely be seen through the clouds. Tongue
