If Joe Biden is elected to the Oval Office come November, don’t expect Jill Biden to give up her teaching credentials anytime soon.
Jill, who earned her doctorate in education from the University of Delaware in 2007 and has been a longtime professor at a community college, recently told CBS Sunday Morning that she wants to continue her teaching career, no matter what the election results are.
“I hope so. I would love to,” she said in the interview. “If we get to the White House, I’m gonna continue to teach. It’s important, and I want people to value teachers and know their contributions, and lift up the profession.“
Of her experience working at a community college, she said, “I teach a lot of immigrants and refugees. I love their stories, I love who they are as people, and I love the fact that I can help them on their path to success.”
While her husband served two terms as vice president in Barack Obama’s administration, Jill also continued to teach.
As for the decision-making process when it comes to Joe selecting a running mate, Jill said, “We’ve talked about the different women candidates, but it’s gotta be Joe’s decision. Who he feels most comfortable with, who shares his values. And that’s what he always said that he and Barack had.”
The presumptive Democratic nominee is reportedly considering multiple Black women for his vice presidential pick. Among them are California Senator Kamala Harris, Florida Representative Val Demings, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and California Representative Karen Bass.
