Valdosta - A South Georgia reading teacher is named the best in the state.

The Georgia Reading Association named Dr. Jo Ann Bass its Reading Teacher of the Year for the college-university level. She teaches reading to education majors at Valdosta State University.

"I don't have a particular teaching strategy, but I always try to treat each student with dignity and respect and work with them on an individual basis if needed," said Bass. "I want to treat them like human beings rather than just numbers."

Bass was nominated for the award by the Cook Area Reading Council.

Tracy Bornman from Adel received the elementary level award and Henrietta Drew from Albany received the award for the middle school level.
