Dr. Jill Biden

Educator

Dr. Jill Biden has been an educator for more than three decades. Prior to moving to Washington, D.C., she taught English at a community college in Delaware, at a public high school, and at a psychiatric hospital for adolescents.

As Second Lady, Dr. Biden worked to bring attention to the sacrifices made by military families, to highlight the importance of community colleges to America's future, and to raise awareness around areas of particular importance to women, including breast cancer prevention, all while continuing to teach as a full-time English professor at a community college in Northern Virginia.

Dr. Biden earned her doctorate in education from the University of Delaware in January 2007. Her dissertation focused on maximizing student retention in community colleges. She also has two master's degrees—both of which she earned while working and raising a family.
