would be surprised that a Church Music major would have a place or even be qualified to teach in a public school. With my major being Church Music, I am qualified and have a unique opportunity to minster to students musically in the public schools. Music opens up a door that other teachers may not ever have. I believe that Christian teachers can demonstrate Christ’s love to public school students effectively through musical education. While working in an environment where Christianity is not tolerated
