Lesa Banks, a long-time art teacher in Sioux City, serves as a liaison for the local teachers’ union and the Iowa State Education Association as an exeutive board member for Siouxland Uniserv. Banks tells Siouxland Public Media teachers would rather have students in school but safety should be the highest priority.
