Hit-and-run teacher gives up on teaching

A Florida teacher who hit four children with her car -- killing two -- and kept driving is giving up her fight to teach again.

From the St. Petersburg Times:

"She wants to get on with her life," attorney Barry Cohen said Thursday. He was scheduled to represent Porter next week in a hearing concerning her right to teach in Florida.

Instead, Porter is relinquishing her certification voluntarily, he said. She has decided to focus on her private dance studio rather than face another public spotlight in the racially charged incident.
