Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot joined Dr. Biden at the Arturo Velasquez Institute, a satellite campus of Richard J. Daley College.
"I want to thank the teachers who are here – my colleagues! – and the students," said Dr. Biden, who also teaches community college. "I just feel right at home."
The First Lady's visit to Chicago is part of a multi-city tour coinciding with the final week of Hispanic Heritage Month.
