WASHINGTON – President Bush's daughter Jenna plans to live in the District of Columbia and teach at a public school serving low-income children.
Jenna Bush (search), 22, graduated last spring from the University of Texas with a degree in English. She campaigned with her father during the summer and fall as he sought re-election but said she hoped to teach at a charter school after the election.
A spokesman for first lady Laura Bush, Gordon Johndroe, confirmed that Jenna would go to work for a public school in Washington but declined to disclose where she has applied for a teaching position or other details.
The president "thinks it's great that she's pursuing what she wants to do," White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Wednesday.
Her twin sister, Barbara, earned a humanities degree from Yale last spring. Her career plans have not been announced. McClellan said Barbara is helping with the Bush inaugural operation.
