U.S. first lady Jill Biden visited a school in Panama on May 20, 2022, to learn about the “See and Hear to Learn” program, initiated by Panama’s first lady Yazmin Colon de Cortizo.
Biden was welcomed by a traditional dancer and learned how teachers and medical doctors evaluate the health of the eyes and ears of children from poverty-stricken families.
Jill Biden has been a classroom teacher for more than 30 years and has continued teaching English since she is became the first lady of the United States. Biden is the first first lady to maintain her career outside of the White House.
After visiting Ecuador on Thursday, Biden landed Friday around midday in Panama and was first received by Colon de Cortizo and her daughter Carolina Esther at the national residency.
