(Scroll down for video) A science teacher who has decided that he no longer wanted to live as a man, will now return to school as a woman.
Parents are having a mixed reaction about the teacher who taught at a school for many years.
Gary Sonce, 56, has been a great teacher in the Yosemite High School in California, as a man for 24 years, but when he returns to school after spring break, he will be completely transformed into a woman named Karen Adell Scot.
Gary, who was a married man with children, decided that he can no longer live as a man. A while back, he came out to his wife and children, saying that he always “felt like a female trapped in a man’s body.”
His wife left him and the two are in the process of divorcing. When he came out to school officials they were more accepting.
Yosemite Unified School District Superintendent James Sargent explained that the California Education Code 220, states that “no person shall be subjected to discrimination regarding their gender, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.
Sargent also said that “If students feel uncomfortable, “school counselors and administrators are available to assist them.”
