Professor Holds Student’s Baby During Class After She Told Him She Couldn’t Find A Sitter

When a Lincoln University student told her professor she had to miss class because she couldn’t find a babysitter, his answer was “No.”

Imani Lamarr, a 21-year-old student at the Pennsylvania university, told her health science professor Dr. Aqeel Dix she wouldn’t be able to make it to class because she couldn’t find a babysitter to look after her infant son.

“No. He told me no. And I was just looking at him like, no I can’t miss class? I don’t have nobody to watch my baby,” she told ABC6.

“I’m not going to have one of my students miss my class because they have no one to watch their child. That’s just not an option for me,” Dix said.

He told Lamarr to bring the baby to class.


“I will never have a student miss class because they have no one to keep their kids,” Diz wrote on Instagram. “I will hold Dr. Dix daycare in the back of my class before I allow them to miss class. Days like this makes me fall in love with what I do.”
