Gay Davidson-Shepard, the former Mesa View Middle School teacher charged with having sexual relations with a 17-year-old boy, has retired from the Ocean View School District.
Davidson-Shepard's retirement was effective May 28, according to district records. She was put on administrative leave after her arrest in April.
An official with the district would not say whether Davidson-Shepard's retirement was connected with the case. Her husband, Daniel Shepard, who is also charged in the case, retired from Westminster High School in 2009.
