America’s First Lady Jill Biden is back at work. She is the first ‘First Lady’ so far to hold a job in this position. On Tuesday, she returned to her classroom at Northern Virginia Community College where she had taken online classes last semester. Jill Biden has been teaching at this school since 2009. While she was still teaching in the position of American’s ‘second lady’, the school had to have an intense discussion about writing her full name for the class schedule.
eager to return to class
Jill Biden is the first woman to leave the White House and return to work. “There are some things you can’t change and I can’t wait to get back to class,” she recently told Good Housekeeping magazine. Biden was eager to see her students face-to-face after teaching digitally for more than a year because of the pandemic, which still poses a challenge to the Biden administration.
First lady job
Tammy Vigil, a professor of communication at Boston University, said being a working “first lady” is a “big deal”. Vigil has written a book about former First Lady Michelle Obama and Melania Trump. Earlier the first ladies of the country did not work outside the home. Especially, when the house used to be the White House. She helped her husbands and raised children and acted as an efficient host.
The first women to have served as messengers
Some first ladies acted as special messengers for their husbands. Elinor Roosevelt was particularly active. She would travel across America and inform then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt could hardly remain active because of polio. She used to advocate for the poor, minorities and other disabled people. He began writing a nationally syndicated column from the White House.
example for the future
Laura Bush, a former US primary school teacher and librarian among the first ladies of recent times, quit working outside the home when she was a child. She did not work after her husband became president. Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama also decided not to continue their careers while in the White House. Jill, 70, has opened a new path for herself and for the First Ladies of the future.
