Video: Victory for transgender former teacher called "worse than gay"

NEW YORK (WABC) -- 60-year-old Marla Krolikowskii, formerly known as Mark, was fired after 32 years in October, 2012 as a teacher at St. Francis Catholic high school in Queens. She claims it was because she declared she is transgender, that the then vice principal called her worse than gay.

"It's terrible. They robbed me of dignity and livelihood I loved," said Krolikowski.

School officials refused to speak to Eyewitness News on Monday.

"She was fired for appropriate non-discriminatory reasons. She was insubordinate," said St. Francis Prep Attorney Phil Semprevivo.
