Karen Pence teaching art at religious school in Virginia

Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, returns to the classroom to teach art to elementary students in Northern Virginia

WASHINGTON -- It's back to school for Karen Pence, Vice President Mike Pence's wife.

Mrs. Pence began teaching art to elementary students at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia on Tuesday. Mrs. Pence accepted the job in December and was to have rebooted her teaching career on Monday. But classes were canceled after a heavy weekend snowfall across the Washington region.

Her office says she'll teach twice a week until May.

Mrs. Pence was a teacher for 25 years, including 12 teaching art at Immanuel Christian School, before then-U.S. Rep. Mike Pence was elected Indiana's governor.

Mrs. Pence's immediate predecessor, Jill Biden, wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, taught English twice a week at a Northern Virginia community college during his two terms.
