Molly Davis, a third-grade teacher at Fulton Elementary School, recently competed in the game show "Wheel of Fortune." Davis' episode will air at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, on NBC.

A Dubuque teacher wasn’t the big winner on Thursday night’s episode of “Wheel of Fortune,” but she didn’t walk away empty-handed.

Molly Davis, who teaches at Fulton Elementary School, won $2,000 during her appearance on the long-running NBC game show. The episode was filmed in December in Los Angeles.

Davis was vexed by the “lose a turn” option on the show’s eponymous wheel, preventing her from solving any of the main puzzles. However, she was able to nab $2,000 for solving a toss-up puzzle with her guess, “Hours of the day.”

Before the contest began, she chatted with host Pat Sajak about her karaoke acumen. When he suggested a little classroom karaoke, Davis seemed receptive.
