First Lady to Visit Orlando For Scripps Spelling Bee
First Lady Jill Biden will travel to Orlando on Thursday for the second time in as many weeks.
Biden will arrive Thursday evening around 6pm to attend the championship rounds of the 2021 Scripps National Spelling Bee!
Each of the 11 finalists in the prestigious event will be invited to a private meeting with the First Lady before their competition, according to the White House.
Dr. Biden, an educator, also attended the finals of the 2009 Scripps Bee held in Washington, D.C.

The well known competition was held virtually this year, but the final rounds will be held live and in person on Thursday night. The event is being hosted by Walt Disney World Resort inside the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, and will be broadcast on ESPN2 at 8 p.m. ET.
Dr. Biden’s Background
Dr. Jill Biden holds a Bachelor’s Degree, two Master’s Degrees, and a Doctorate of Education in educational leadership. She is a former high school English and reading teacher as well as an English and writing instructor at Delaware Technical & Community College.
A true lifelong educator at heart, Biden didn’t allow something like the title of Second Lady deter her from molding the minds of young Americans. She made history as the only wife of a Vice President or President to hold a paying job during her husband’s tenure. Starting in 2009, she was an English composition professor at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA).
According to a 2020 Washington Post article, former First Lady Michelle Obama’s recollection of her time travelling with Biden was simply,
Jill is always grading papers. Which is funny because I’d forget, ‘Oh yeah, you have a day job!’ And then she pulls out her papers and she’s so diligent.”
Along with her many philanthropic efforts and professional accolades, Biden has published a memoir and two children’s books.
