Teachers are often praised for helping students academically. However, they often touch students’ lives in other ways. Katy Humphrey is 33 years-old and is a student at Baylor University.
She was frustrated when her babysitter cancelled at the last minute, but she decided to go to class anyway. She brought her four-month daughter to class. The baby started crying halfway through class.
Katy’s professor is a father of two girls. That is why soothing a baby came naturally to him. He picked up Katy’s daughter and held her until class was over. He continued to teach class as he held the baby. Professor Willoughby held baby Millie for almost an hour.
He was interviewed by KWTX Radio Station. He stated that the reason he held the baby because he did not want the student to feel uncomfortable. Professor Willoughby also stated that he wants to look out for his students and help them in whatever way that he can.
Professor Willoughby is the type of teacher everyone wishes that they had. He really cares for his students and wants to help them in whatever way that he can. Professor Willoughby is a natural nurturer. The baby was quiet the whole time that she was held by the professor.
