Albany- One outstanding teacher is sometimes all it takes to point a struggling student in the right direction.

It's teachers like that who the Dougherty County School System recognized Thursday night.

All of the educators are teachers of the year from their schools.

Glen Brown, a history and economics teacher at Monroe High School, was chosen as this year's top teacher. Brown is known for his passion and enthusiasm in the classroom.

"Education is a wonderful career, it's a wonderful place to be," he said. "It is something that has so many values and rewards. The light in a child's face when they grasp that concept makes everything worth it."

The school system also honored 44 retiring teachers with a combined 1,347 years of teaching experience.
