ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Jill Biden, wife of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, says she is "thrilled" to have begun teaching at Northern Virginia Community College.
The 57-year-old Biden said resuming her teaching career with an adjunct professor position at the community college this week is allowing her to focus on a typically overlooked educational demographic, The Washington Post said Wednesday.
"I am thrilled to return to the classroom to continue working with community college students, whom I greatly admire and enjoy teaching," she said in a statement. "I have always believed in the power of community colleges to endow students with critical life skills, and I am pleased that I can make a difference by doing what I love to do, teaching people who are excited to learn."
Biden, who has 28 years of educational experience on her resume, began working at the college on Tuesday and is scheduled to teach two courses at the school's campus in Alexandria, Va.
Biden spokeswoman Courtney O'Donnell told the Post the semester plans will not be challenging to the vice president's wife.
"For her, being in the classroom is extremely natural," O'Donnell said. "She is a born teacher."
