Local teacher takes a spin at the 'Wheel'

A Memphis School teacher took a spin with Pat and Vanna Tuesday night on Wheel of Fortune.

Aimee Seligstein teaches Algebra One at Wooddale High School in Memphis. While she normally has a captive audience of 25 9th graders, Tuesday night she had a much bigger audience.

For Seligstein, the moment was a childhood dream come true, "I've always wanted to be on a game show."

The Memphis teacher, who's used to standing in front of a high school classroom, easily took to standing before a national TV audience. But getting there did take a lot of work.

"Probably four or five thousand people who showed up for the audition," Seligstein said.  "I never thought me being one out of four thousand."   

Then there were still more auditions. "Based on how well you did the first time and how well you did on the test they eliminated half the crowd," Seligstein explained.

The teacher who's used to giving out tests, obviously did well on her test, by making it to the "Wheel of Fortune."

By the first break she had the early lead. So did the other players did get in on the action? Well, Aimee is keeping her lips sealed.
