Biden taught English and writing remotely for months before returning to the classroom.

 

She taught at the community college throughout the eight years that her husband Joe Biden served as vice president.

Leaders of the National Education Association, which is the country’s largest teachers’ union, reacting to Biden’s decision said.

 

‘She sees it up close and personally and now, in the position as first lady, not only does she give voice to that from a place of understanding, she has an opportunity to create a platform and to have influence,’ said the union’s president Becky Pringle.

 

Even though Biden is the first wife of a president to leave the White House for a full time job she is not the first wife of a president with a teaching background.
