When Teaching Goes Beyond Theory

The picture says it all! This story just makes you believe in humanity again. Read the short but powerful story below. This was originally posted on Imgur.


“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 took the kid from her, calmed him and continued teaching.”

      Such empathy, professor! Maybe the kid only misses his dad, or all the people around are alien to him.

  8. what a great professor

  9. As a foster mom also attending college, I had to take a child to class with me one day. My professor did the same thing for me. She took the baby and held her the entire class and kept right on teaching!!! I’ll never forget her.
