System awards top teacher

Albany- Teachers who truly love to be in the classroom are the ones who make the biggest impact on students.

That's one of the qualities that makes Westover High School teacher Barbara Jack an outstanding teacher.

Thursday night, she was honored as the Dougherty County School System's Teacher of the Year. Jack teaches English to the 9th, 10th and 12th graders at Westover.

"It makes life interesting and enjoyable and we just have fun. I mean it isn't a job," Jack said, still surprised about the award.

The school system honored teachers of the year from each school and recognized 44 retiring administrators and teachers. Combined, they spent more than 1000 years educating children.
