DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty County School System named its Teacher of the Year Thursday night.

Lidia Olds teaches at International Studies Elementary Charter School.

Other finalists and 34 retirees were also honored at Thursday's banquet.

Coordinators said that it was a hard decision to pick a winner out of this year's group of 25 teachers. 

"Our judges go out to the 8 finalist and do classroom observations," said Sonya Spillers, the Teacher of the Year Program Coordinator. "The classroom observations serve as a large scoring for these teachers. How they interact with the children. How they teach their curriculum."

Olds received a ring from Herff Jones and a year's supply of Charmin tissue donated by P&G.
