Jill Biden heads back to classroom as a working first lady
WASHINGTON (AP) — Jill Biden is going back to her whiteboard. After months of teaching writing and English to community college students in boxes on a computer screen, the first lady resumes teaching in person Tuesday from a classroom at Northern Virginia Community College, where she has worked since 2009. She is the first first lady to leave the White House and log hours at a full-time job. “There are some things you just can’t replace, and I can’t wait to get back in the classroom,” she recently told Good Housekeeping magazine.
“We spoke a musical language, music says it best. Singing brought us together,” wrote Hendryx.
"Sarah Dash was an awesomely talented, beautiful and loving soul who blessed my life and the lives of so many others in more ways than I can say,” Labelle wrote. “Rest in power my dear sister.”
Dash originally started in the group The Ordettes, before it morphed into The Bluebells and then into Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles. In the early 1970s, they shortened it to Labelle, changed their outfits and veered toward funk, with all three members singing lead and background.
They made gospel-soul covers of rock songs, and their original tunes included the ballad “Can I Speak to You Before You Go to Hollywood?” “Morning Much Better” and “Touch Me All Over."

The social media platform, as well as sister sites Instagram and WhatsApp, went offline on Monday, October 4, and celebs turned to Twitter to react to the hours-long outage. “Hello literally everyone,” Twitter’s official account tweeted amid increased activity on the website. With other social media down, Twitter became the primary platform for celebrities, including Jana Kramer, Jimmy Kimmel and more. Country icon Dolly Parton noted the sudden influx of tweets right away. “Everyone showing up to @Twitter today while @Facebook @instagram @WhatsApp are down like…” the 75-year-old posted from her official account alongside a GIF from a vintage video that showed her making a grand entrance.
