Kindergarten teacher Tim Atkinson juggles math and a little U.S. history with Bible verses.
One moment he is working on addition and subtraction with his seven young students at Berean Liberty Christian Academy. The next, he is using song to help them memorize passages from the Bible.
At this tiny Christian school, scholastic rigor exists alongside a giant white poster illustrating the seven days of Creation.
Atkinson, 33, an evangelical Christian, is at ease shifting between the religious and nonreligious. Advertisement
