Jill Biden, in her quiet way, reinvents the role of US First Lady

In her quiet manner, Jill Biden is redefining the role of the First Lady of the United States.

Washington, United States: 

Jill Biden promotes Covid vaccinations and attends political rallies when her schedule as a college lecturer allows.

In her quiet manner, Jill Biden is redefining the role of the First Lady of the United States.

President Joe Biden had to apologise for his wife’s absence last week at a former governor’s funeral.

“Jill is not with me today because she teaches full-time at Northern Virginia Community College,” the president explained.

In September, the first lady’s statement that she would resume face-to-face instruction at her college generated national news.

A presidential spouse has never had a professional career outside of the White House.

Jill Biden, now 70, married Joe Biden, a widowed senator with two young sons, in 1977. Later, the couple had a daughter together.

Jill Biden, a member of the(NEA) National Education Association with a doctorate in education, continued to teach when her husband served as Vice President under Barack Obama.

Before returning to in-person education this fall, she taught remotely throughout the coronavirus pandemic, as did other educators in the United States. She currently has two days a week when she teaches English and writing.

When she’s not in the classroom, the slim, blond-haired Biden may be found by President Barack Obama’s side at private and public events, as well as, increasingly, alone on stage.


The first lady is touring the country, asking Americans to get vaccinated against Covid-19 and, since vaccines for teenagers and younger children were approved, to immunise their children as well.

She has also campaigned for a Democratic nominee in a local election, visited the Tokyo Olympics, and was viewed in a cafe with Brigitte Macron, the French president’s wife, during a diplomatic crisis between Washington and Paris.
