Update: Dripping Springs teacher Stacy Landry won $16,904 in cash and prizes, including a trip to Hawaii, on Monday’s “Wheel of Fortune.”

Earlier: Look for a Central Texas teacher on “Wheel of Fortune” tonight.

Stacy Landry, a pre-kindergarten teacher at Rooster Springs Elementary in the Dripping Springs school district, will be one of three contestants vying for cash and prizes on the hit game show.

“A huge fan of ‘Wheel,’ she grew up watching the show with her family and now enjoys tuning in every night over dinner with her husband and their two daughters,” the show said in a news release. “Stacy hopes to use her winnings to start college funds for her kids. When she heard the Wheelmobile would be rolling into Austin, she jumped at the chance to audition to be a contestant.”

So … will Landry win big? You’ll have to tune in to find out.

“Wheel of Fortune” airs at 6:30 p.m. on KXAN.
