      In her obit, Finley wrote about her family and career change from attorney to teacher. Then, she pivoted:

      You know what? I’m not dying for this – I won’t even pretend to. I will fight with every fiber of my being as a mother, a teacher, a lawyer, an Iowan, and an American to make our current leadership understand and act with reason.

      “I’m very worried. I’m a breast cancer survivor and I have some compromised immune system,” Finley said. “I’ve only been a teacher for one year. Children can’t learn unless they’re in an emotionally-stable and safe environment.”

      Pat Garrett, a spokesman for the Governor’s Office, said Reynolds believes getting Iowa’s students and teachers back to school safely is an important part of the state’s coronavirus recovery plan.
