The First Lady of the United States is back in class

First Lady Jill Biden will begin teaching face-to-face at Northern Virginia Community College next week, after a year of teaching remotely because of Covid-19.

“It can be confirmed that Mrs. Biden will begin teaching for the new term next week,” a spokeswoman for the first lady said on September 4.

US First Lady Jill Biden will teach every Tuesday and Thursday at Northern Virginia Community College for 13 weeks. She is likely to teach a course on how to write academic essays.

Jill began teaching at the university when Joe Biden was vice president under Barack Obama. She has repeatedly said that she will continue to teach even after becoming the first lady of the United States.

Jill Biden, 69, is the first first lady in US history to pursue a career of her own while still performing in her traditional role in the White House.

Ms. Jill holds a bachelor’s degree, two master’s degrees and a doctorate in education from the University of Delaware. She obtained her doctorate in 2007 under the name Jill Jacobs. “Teaching is not just what I do, it’s who I am,” she said when speaking at the Democratic national convention in Delaware last summer.
