Teacher's touching classroom act for teen mum: 'No words'

·2-min read

Touching images show a teacher taking care of one of his students' babies so she could study in class.

The student shared a photograph showing her teacher holding her baby and captioned it with a thank you note, which has since notched up nearly 10,000 likes at the time of writing.

The incident took place at Escuela Media No. 1 (High School No. 1) in the town of Brandsen, which is located in the Buenos Aires province in Argentina.

Ludmila Disante, 18, was encouraged to drop out of high school and focus on raising her child when she became pregnant. But she refused, deciding to return to school only three months after giving birth.

Her daughter Pilar, who is now three months old, went to school with her where her political economy teacher, identified in local media reports as Federico Tenreyro, offered to hold the baby so she could focus on her special catch-up class, which took place last Saturday.

Saturdays were the only day when Ludmila could not find a babysitter and she was unsure about being able to attend.

But the teacher reportedly told her: "Come anyway, I'll wait for you. I have five children. We are going to find a way to take care of her so that you can study."

Mum's teacher post garners 10,000 likes

And sure enough, the kind teacher can be seen holding his student's baby during the class, allowing her to focus on learning.

She shared the photograph of the moment on social media.

"I would like to thank this teacher who held my baby for me while I was studying. He is great, all schools should have teachers like this," Ludmila said.

"So that all the girls who are mums and want to finish their studies can, the truth is that I have no words to thank this teacher.

"And on top of that, he took care of her while I was studying, he also made her sleep. I applaud you, teacher, you are really great!"

Her post had nearly 10,000 likes at the time of writing since being published on October 30. 

The story has recently emerged, with local media outlet TN explaining Ludmila had first shared it on WhatsApp before being encouraged to share it on Facebook, where it quickly went viral.
