Local first-grade teacher to appear on 'Wheel of Fortune'

Tina Arons, a first-grade teacher at Meadow Lane Elementary School in Anderson, will be a contestant on “Wheel of Fortune” on Tuesday.

The show airs at 7 p.m. on KNVN NBC 24. Check your TV provider for the channel.

Arons, 44, of Redding, said she has been a fan of the show since childhood and she finally decided to try out last spring. She traveled to a “Wheel Mobile” event in Rohnert Park in March and then was among 80 people selected for a final casting call in San Francisco at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco.

Would-be contestants were told if they were picked to be on the show, they would get a letter in the mail.

“When I opened my mailbox, I saw the ‘Wheel of the Fortune’ logo and I jumped up and down,” Arons said of the day the letter came.

Arons’ appearance was filmed in August. She plans to have a watching party at her home with friends and family Tuesday.
