Live at Five on KTIV
My Siouxland day ended Tuesday with an interview on the NBC affiliate KTIV in Sioux City.
Co-anchor of the KTIV evening news, Kristy Ver Mulm (pictured with me) did a live interview on the 5:00 p.m. newscast. I had a chance to applaud the effort of Siouxland legislators Rep. Roger Wendt and Rep. Wes Whited, as well as state Senator Steve Warnstadt. I shared how it is indeed a new day for public education in Iowa with the new majority party in the Iowa House and Senate--working together with Governor Culver.
Before heading out of the KTIV studios, Wanda Synhorst stopped to pose with TV sensation Ellen DeGeneres.
I'm Linda Nelson, a fourth-grade teacher at Carter Lake Elementary School in Council
Bluffs. I'm on a leave of absence to serve as President of the Iowa State Education Association (ISEA). I was re-elected in March 2006 to serve a second 2-year term until June of 2008. I invite you to take a look at all the great educators and students I meet when I'm on the road visiting Iowa's schools!
