VP, Jill Biden pay respect to teachers

Dr. Jill Biden Guest Blogs on Community Colleges

By Jill Biden I wanted to share some thoughts about a very exciting day I had Monday. In the morning I traveled with President Obama to Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, New York. As I told the students and teachers I met there, I felt right at home. I’ve been an English teacher for almost 30 years, and I’ve spent much of my career in the community college system. In fact, yesterday I was right back in my own college classroom teaching English. People often ask me why I choose to teach at a community college. Well—the answer is simple: It’s my students.
