Good news for ESL and developmental English?

According to a note in Inside Higher Ed, Dr. Jill Biden is going to be teaching in Virginia.  She will teach two courses, one in ESL and another in developmental English.

This seems like it could be good news for those of us who teach in either of these fields.  Someone with some actual experience in ESL and developmental courses will have access to the Vice President, at least.  It can’t hurt, at any rate.

The original story comes from the Washington Post. I found it interesting in that piece to discover that Dr. Biden only got her doctorate in 2007.  Maybe it isn’t too late for me!
