Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joseph Biden and a doctor of education, is taking her new hometown by the horns: She announced today that she will return to teaching, her career of 28 years, and will work as an adjunct professor at Northern Viginia Community College.

Mrs. Biden, a major education advocate, will take on two English courses.

"I am thrilled to return to the classroom to continue working with community college students, whom I greatly admire and enjoy teaching," said Dr. Biden, according to a White House press release. "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."
