YAKIMA, Wash. —

A Yakima teacher who was acquitted of sexual misconduct charges says she'll appeal the state's move to revoke her teaching certificate.

Michele Taylor told KAPP she was surprised by this week's move by the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction because she won the right in court to go back to school. She says she hopes to continue teaching at East Valley High School until she retires. She says after years of public attention she's not concerned about what people think of her.

The physical education teacher was acquitted last June of criminal charges that she had sex with a 16-year-old student and sent inappropriate text messages to him and a 15-year-old.

Taylor has been on paid leave since June 2009.
