Professor's Response to Student's Absence: 'Bring Baby To Class'

A University of Tennessee student got a heart-warming surprise when she emailed her professor about missing a class last week. 

Morgan King emailed her professor, Sally Hunter, to tell her she had had to miss class because she couldn't find child care for her daughter, Korbyn. 

Professor Hunter responded by inviting her daughter to class. She wrote, "In the future, if you are having trouble finding someone to watch Korbyn, feel free to just BRING HER with you to class." 

She said, "I would be absolutely delighted to hold her while I teach, so that you can still pay attention to the class and take notes." 

King wrote on her Twitter that she was crying with gratitude for her professor's understanding.
