When University of Tennessee student Morgan King had to miss class because she couldn’t find a sitter for her daughter, Korbyn, she never expected the response she got from her professor. Dr. Sally Hunter emailed her student back and invited her to bring the baby along anytime she need to.
"In the future, if you are having trouble finding someone to watch Korbyn, feel free to just BRING HER with you to class," Hunter writes. "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 tweeted that she was crying with gratitude for her professor’s understanding. As a single mom who’s own mother passed away from breast cancer, King needs all the understanding she can get as she completes her education and cares for her baby. And since her professor closed the email by asking King to let her know if there are other ways she could be supporting her, looks like she’s in good hands!
