Cissé asked the student to bring her child to the lecture so that they could find a solution together. But when Cissé saw her students couldn’t balance taking notes and soothing the baby, and she decided to carry the baby on her back.

Cissé said. She taught a three-hour class with the sleeping baby secured to her back. “In my native Mali, we used sheets and other pieces of fabric to securely carry babies on our backs. My natural instinct was to find a way to secure the baby and I was standing next to a rack with a clean lab coat.”

“Towards the end of the class, the baby woke up and I took him off my back and I fed him. He did not cry once,”

Later that day Twitter user @AnnaKhadejah, who is the professor’s daughter, tweeted a picture of her mother, Dr. Ramata Sissoko Cisse – in class with the baby on her back. And she wrote, “My mom is my role model.” “Her student couldn’t find a babysitter today & being the true African mother that she is, taught a Three-hour class with the baby on her back & fed him.”

A Twitter user said, “A true and compassionate educator. We need more people like your mom teaching. Blessings on you both!.” Also, another user wrote, “Your mother was the absolute BEST anatomy professor I’ve ever had!”

While another said, “The world needs more people like your mom. My mom couldn’t find a babysitter for me once and she took me to class the teacher let me sit at the desk and chill.”
