Downtown Albany -- You probably have fond memories of a special teacher who impacted your life.

Dougherty County's best teachers were honored Thursday night for that dedication to education.

"Teachers of the Year" from all 26 schools in the Dougherty County system got a red-carpet welcome tonight at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Eight finalists were chosen and judged by a panel who picked the countywide teacher of the year.

"The teacher of the year will go on to Atlanta to compete with teachers from across the state for the prestigious state-wide title.  We're just proud of our teachers.  And these are the best of our best," said R.D. Harter, Dougherty County Schools Public Information Director.

Laura Wasley, a 3rd grade teacher at West Town Elementary School, was named the 2008-2009 teacher of the year.

More than three dozen retirees were also honored for their years of service.
