NORWALK - Norwalk police say a Darien High School teacher is facing charges for allegedly masturbating at a local gym last week.

Police say the management at an L.A. Fitness Club in Norwalk told authorities Douglas Paulsen was masturbating in the gym's shower with the curtain partially open to watch another gym member. Paulsen was charged with public indecency Wednesday, authorities say.

Paulsen is an English department coordinator at Darien High School and has worked in the district for more than a decade. Superintendent Donald Fiftal says Paulsen will remain in the classroom, but is being monitored.

Paulsen will appear in court Monday.
