Professor Nathan Alexander tells his students at Morehouse College to let him know if they need anything and when one of them couldn’t find childcare for his baby girl, he brought her along to class. Nick Vaughn was one of the students in the class when Wayne Hayer showed up with his daugher in a carrier, but he says Alexander was totally cool and supportive.
“No problem, in fact I will even hold her so you can take better notes on class,” Vaughn quoted Alexander as saying in a now viralFacebook post.His offer backs up the support he already extended to his students and shows that he’s really willing to help them learn in any way he can.
“We build community, we make sure that we support our students in whatever they need, and that’s part of my commitment,” Alexander explains, adding, “What I want to make sure that I underline is that I’m not special. Teachers do this stuff every day in their own way.”
