Tanner Cross has been employed as a public-school teacher in Loudoun County, Virginia, for 8 years. During that time, he has consistently received strong evaluations.
Then, in late May, he was suspended, banned from campus, and told he was under investigation for potential "disruption" by Loudoun County Public Schools.

"I'm a teacher, but I serve God first," he said.
Thankfully, a court has reinstated Tanner to his teaching position. But his court battle continues…
