I've heard that around 40% of scientists have their own "Personal God". The general misconception that they are either atheist or agnostic isn't true at all. There are some open minded religious people that are open and have accepted the fact that science is a fact of life. Science teachers though in that case can't really put their "religious beliefs'' when teaching science because then it is highly likely that it compromises their work in TEACHING SCIENCE.

I think the number of science teachers that are religious are about the same percentage as the number of other kinds of teachers that are also religious. I suppose you can ask them all. But most atheists and agnostics are generally more educated than those who are superstitious or religious if you prefer. They are also typically more Liberal and Democratic the more they are educated.
All my science teachers were Christian. SO is my mom, who is a science teacher. Although these are just public school teachers... Not really sure about the high up there scientists. I think skeptikitten is a biologist and she is athiest. She could tell you more.
