We as educators have always known we play multiple roles in a student's life. But here is where an educator was willing to ease a mom's wish to obtain her education when the babysitter did not show up.
As others have commented...We are proud of the mom for not making an excuse to not to go to school that day.
And we are also proud of the professor who encouraged this mom to stay in class when her baby began to cry. He became the "babysitting lecturing professor" to show how important her education was to him and that "life is life".
Sometimes "LIFE" gets in the way of our dreams, but sometimes there are "education angels" around to help motivated individuals along the way.
This professor is an AWESOME education angel!!

So one of the students came with her kid, because she didn't have a babysitter. The kid starts to cry in the middle of the class, so his mom, all embarrassed gets up to leave, and the professor takes the kid from her, calmed him and continued teaching. #ashe #bravo #loveit
