Tonight, former second lady Dr. Jill Biden will take the (virtual) stage at the Democratic National Convention, ahead of the formal nomination of her husband Joe Biden on Thursday. Many people know very little about the wives of vice presidents, but as Dr. Biden steps into the spotlight as the potential next first lady more will have the chance to get to know her.
Dr. Biden is a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. She’s also a lifelong educator, and tonight, she will make her convention speech from her former classroom.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware, she taught in public schools for 13 years. She taught English, served as a reading specialist, and even taught at an adolescent psychiatric hospital.
