My First Classroom

In approx. a month and a half I will be begin teaching my first class.  I know that I am the teacher of the class, but I am not technically allowed to insert my own political beliefs into the classroom setting.  To what extent does this "ethical rule" go?  Am I allowed to proclaim that I am vegan and proud?  Can I display a compassionate poster behind my desk?  I want to be objective, but at the same time, how can I hide who I am?  And at what cost?  I will never tell my students that vegan is the ONLY way to go, but I want them to be able to ask any questions that they may have...
