Teacher Transvestite

SANTA ROSA, California () -- Mathematics instructor Dick Giles finally decided to stop pretending to his students, so he came to class this week dressed as Diane.

Giles, a father of 10 who teaches at Santa Rosa Junior College, revealed this week that he is a transvestite.

Giles, 58, who admitted that few people knew his secret, said he has identified with the opposite gender for as long as he can remember.

Administrators at the school 80 kilometers northeast of San Francisco said he can continue to teach as long as his lifestyle does not interfere with his duties.
