I am a 7th and 8th Grade Science Teacher in Texas.  I have taught 5th and 6th Grade Science as well as High School Physics, Biology, and Integrated Physics & Chemistry.  I was raised in the Church of Christ, am currently a member of a Southern Baptist Church but do not see myself as loyal to a denomination.  In science and religion, I preffer to think for myself.  I do not like to believe anything just because someone else tells me to.  Instead, I read, explore, and test everything to arrive at conclusions that are intellectually supportable and based on facts, not tradition.
