Supportive Professor Offers To Hold A Student’s Baby So He Can Take Notes During Lecture

With all of the craziness going on in the world today, we can never seem to get quite enough good news. Wholesome content is like a diamond in the rough, but once you find it, it’s impossible not to share.

Recently, we came across this story about how a truly amazing professor went above and beyond to help a student who brought their 5-month-old to class and it’s honestly the best way to start your week.

Nathan Alexander is a mathematics professor at Morehouse College in Atlanta.

According to his personal website, Professor Alexander says, “I am learning how to use mathematics to engage in and write about social movements, collective action, education and justice.”

One of Nathan’s students, Wayne Hayer, recently showed up to lecture with his five-month-old daughter Assata because he was unable to find a babysitter and didn’t want to miss class.

Nathan graciously offered to hold the little girl so Hayer would be able to take notes.

“No problem, in fact, I will even hold her so you can take better notes in class,” Nathan said.

Another student in the class, Nick Vaughn, shared the professor’s act of kindness on Twitter.

And people applauded Nathan for going above and beyond to help a student.

But the professor humbly deflected his praise to Hayer for the hard work he puts in every day.

“He works two jobs, is a full time student, is involved in leadership programs at school and is a parent,” the professor told CNN. “This photo serves as a reminder of what parents have to do every day and how important it is to have affordable childcare.”

Not to mention, Assata was the perfect student.

“She was really behaved and even started to fall asleep at the end,” said Alexander. “We had a bottle ready on standby, if needed. We enjoyed having her energy in class.”

Kudos, Professor Nathan.
