Student Can't Find Child Care So Professor Holds His Baby Throughout Class


With midterms looming, Wayne Hayer, 26, of Atlanta, Georgia, didn't want to miss his algebra class Friday at Morehouse College. But Wayne was unable to find childcare for his five-month-old daughter, and his wife, Frida, had errands to run, ahead of the class to review content for the upcoming midterms. 

So he decided to bring Assata along and explain his situation to Professor Nathan Alexander. Professor Alexander quickly offered to hold the baby so that Wayne wouldn't be distracted, and taught the rest of the class with the baby strapped to his chest. Allowing Wayne to diligently take notes in preparation for the upcoming tests. Students shared the moment on Facebook and Twitter, where the posts quickly went viral.
