I like OCaml's approach of being functional first, but allowing for escape hatches into imperative code when you really need them.

I've been a classroom teacher in compilers and various functional languages for five years. Having pure functions and isolation of side-effects are fundamental to separation of concerns. Strong, static types, type inference and algebraic types are hard for me to live without.
