A New York school bus monitor who was shown in a video being relentlessly bullied by a group of boys says she's retiring.

Karen Klein told The Associated Press on Friday it was a tough decision to leave the job she held for three years but it's time to move on.

The 68-year-old suburban Rochester grandmother says she's not quitting because of what happened on the last day of school in June, when four seventh-grade students taunted her with profanity, insults and threats during a school bus run. A 10-minute video of the episode went viral online and spurred an outpouring of more than $700,000 in donations from all over the world.

The Greece school district has suspended the students for a year.
