“After getting off a 10 hour shift and picking her up, I had to go straight to class 45 minutes late because class starts exactly the time I get off. My professor took her from my hands and taught class so I would be able to review before our test. I’m forever grateful,” the Twitter user wrote in the caption.

She also clarified that she isn’t a single mother and her baby’s father helps out unconditionally as well. However, this was a rare situation when she had no choice but to take her baby to class.
Side Note: just because I didn’t mention anything about her father in the post does not mean he is not in her life. He does everything for our little girl. It was just ONE day out of the entire semester I had to take her with me. People that KNOW me know he is apart of our life!— 🌸 (@dawnyates_) November 23, 2019

Your professor is awesome for that. I know how it is to work full-time, and go to school, and parent, so Kudos to you both for being hard working parents. I’ve taken my lil guy to work a few times, because she was still at work and we got bills to pay, feel me?— Myron Green II (@MyronGII) November 25, 2019
This is what I call being a "great teacher" she could have easily told you to go home and send you the information via email or someshit but she rather give you the time to learn it from herself in class. Mad props for that teacher and good luck on finals for you— nando_13 (@Zerocanbam) November 23, 2019

All I can say is wow! I didn’t know this picture was taken, was just doing what should’ve been done. Love all my students and want you to succeed. I know all too well what it’s like to be a mom trying to go to school. Hugs sweetie! Thanks for the kind words.— barbiehicks_edu (@barbiehicks_edu) November 24, 2019
