Earlier this year, a photo of a professor holding a baby that a mom had to bring to class went viral. Everyone was celebrating the fact that a man who is also a teacher would trouble himself to help with a fussy toddler when he had important knowledge to impart. Recent graduate Kimmy Lopez was like, "That's cute, I guess, but check out this," and shared a story about how she was helped through school by some devoted teachers:

It reads:

Teachers are the real MVP. To the left a photo, that has gone viral, of a professor holding a students child because he began to cry in class. To the right is my old teacher Mr. Guy of the Re-engagement Program in Springfield MA holding my 10 month old son while I was in class. I had no daycare for my son. I thought it would stop me from finishing school but once I told the administrator's my issue they told me to bring him to school with me. They set up a play pen in their office, brought toys and snacks for my baby, [and] he even took my son to run errands with him, all so that I could come to school every day, study peacefully and focus on my books so that I graduate with my class. Some teachers go all out for their students, they will do just about anything to help you succeed! #hugateacher#loveateacher #therealmvp #MVP #share "Teachers are your second parents".

Anyone can hold a baby for a couple minutes. Providing childcare so a young woman can finally get her H.S. degree while also teaching is a real juggling act. And maybe something that should be the job of the state? Like, universal childcare or something? Bah, these overworked teacher stories are cuter.
