“I did the teacher thing that we’re probably not supposed to do. I prayed — and I prayed out loud,” she said in an interview with NBC News following the violent storm.

Considering her situation at the time of the invocation, it’s understandable why Crosswhite risked facing criticism and potential claims that she violated the separation of church and state. Her life — and the lives of the children she was protecting — hung in the balance. ...

Pray on teachers. Our children need all the prayer they can get especially during a deadly tornado. To threaten her job is ludicrous beyond description.

She did what all teachers should do -- call upon the mercy and protection of the the Almighty. She should do it publicly and she should encourage her students to do so. Isn't a part of education to educate? Teachers teach.
