Professor holds student's baby

A single mother at DeVry University in Nashville, Tennessee brought her young son to class. When the child wanted to get up and be held by the professor, the instructor obliged. A photo has gone viral of Professor Joel Bunkowske holding the toddler while continuing with his lesson.

The mother, identified by local media outlets as Amanda Osbon, said Bunkowske was "amazing, patient and kind." Osbon said she had no other choice but to bring her son to class that day.
