A single mom attending the University of Tennessee, Morgan tweeted a picture of the email from Sally Hunter, a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Child and Family Studies at the university. Not only did the understanding professor excuse Morgan's absence, but she also encouraged her to bring her baby, Korbyn, along to class in the future if a similar situation arises.
Told my professor I missed class yesterday bc I couldn't find childcare & this was her response. I'm literally crying. So blessed/thankful😩😭 pic.twitter.com/3QaThJRXdo— Morgan King (@morgantking) June 16, 2017
"In the future, if you are having trouble finding someone to watch Korbyn, please feel free to just bring her with you to class," Hunter wrote. She also mentioned how she'd be "absolutely delighted" to hold the baby while teaching the class so that Morgan could pay attention in class. How sweet! "I work for the Department of Child and Family studies, so how terrible would it be if I was unwilling to have a child visit our class? I'm very serious with this offer, just bring Korbyn with you!" she added.
When Morgan arrived a tad late to class the following day, her teacher had a similarly adorable response.
Update: I walked into class a couple minutes late this morning & my professor said "awe dang, I thought you were gonna bring Korbyn today😞"— Morgan King (@morgantking) June 16, 2017
