By Len Kiese - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One Dougherty County teacher was selected to carry a prestigious title for an entire year.  

The Dougherty County School System honored retirees and teachers of the year in downtown Albany tonight. That list of 27 was narrowed to 8 finalists who showed exemplary dedication in the classroom.

"I'm humbled by the people with whom I work, the principals, the administrators, but especially the teachers in the classroom. They're working with kids everyday to give them opportunities for their future," said DCSS Public Information Officer R.D. Harter.

The Dougherty County Teacher of the Year is Sharon "Shay" Bradshaw. She's a teacher at Lake Park Elementary School and has spent 30-years teaching students in Kindergarten through 4th grades.

Other finalists were Jordan Cambron, Karen Liebert, Michelle Bergozza, Angela Fillingame, Amy Feston, Shunta Whitfield and Nancy Gay.
