Dougherty County teachers rush to prepare for new school year

Posted: Updated:

Furlough days have caused quite a headache for teachers this past year.

And with three days before the new school year starts many are left rushing to get their rooms and lesson plans ready for the first day of school.

Kimberly Williams, 6th and 8th grade Reading teacher at Albany Middle School says, "The time is a problem because it is a crunch. We like to spend more time preparing the lessons instead of most of the time on the classroom."

Teachers ask that parents get their children the correct supplies so that they can't have the right tools when the year begins.

Albany Middle is working throughout the weekend to tie up loose ends and plan to be up and running Monday morning.
