Although Mrs. Biden is the first wife of a US President to leave the White House for a full-time job she is not the first with a teaching background.
Laura Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, was an elementary school teacher and a librarian but quit after having children.
She had stopped working by the time her husband assumed office in 2001.
The duo of Hilary Clinton and Michelle Obama were also working mothers but ended their jobs while at the White House.
