Uni Professor Branded A Hero For Holding Student’s Baby For Entire Class

A maths professor over in the States has received praise after pictures of him helping one of his student's to babysit went viral.

Nathan Alexander, who teaches at the Morehouse College was pictured taking class while comforting the student's baby as she sat in a carrier strapped to his chest.

According to the person who posted the pictures on social media, Nathan stepped in when he found out the dad couldn't find a babysitter.

The caption reads: "Student came to class today with his child due to no babysitter or anybody to watch her while he was in class. My professor NATHAN ALEXANDER said 'I'll hold her so you can take good notes'."

Clearly this wasn't a one-off moment of kindness either, as numerous other students of Nathan's were quick to chime in and sing his praises.

One wrote: "@professornaite is one of my favourite professors!! Genuinely cares for the students and sacrifices his personal time always to help in any way possible. Nothing but respect."

Another added: "MY FAVOURITE TEACHER! He saved my grade in college algebra my first semester at Morehouse. I was in another section with arguably the WORST teacher in the school, ready to drop out, but he saw I was on the edge and personally tutored me. Went from a D to an A by semester's end."

Go Nathan - what an absolute hero. Even the kid seems to agree, as she looks peaceful and content sat in her carrier while he cracks on with the lesson. As one commenter pointed out, she must've sensed the positive energy.

On Facebook, the uploader of the images went on to explain that not only did the professor teach the entire lecture while looking after the infant, but he also stayed after class helping those with questions with the child still in his arms.
