The question presented in Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church & School v. EEOC is whether or not a schoolteacher should be considered a minister. 1 Although the school teacher in this case, Cheryl Perich, began her employment as a lay teacher, she soon became a called teacher with the title “commissioned minister.” 2 She taught a religion class four times a week and led her class in daily prayers. 3 During the bulk of her workday, however, Perich taught math, reading, English, social studies, science, gym, art, and music to third and fourth graders.
