MONROE, Ga. — A teacher has resigned a week after being arrested outside her school.

Tara Whitman Stewart resigned from the Walton County School District effective Tuesday, a school system spokeswoman said.

Stewart, 47, of Snellville, was arrested on the morning of Nov. 5 outside Walker Park Elementary School, where she was a second grade teacher. She was charged with public drunkenness.

Stewart had taught in the district since 2001.
