College professor Ramata Cissé proved to the world last Thursday that not all heroes wear capes when she came to the rescue of one of her students.
When the young lady was unable to find a sitter for her baby, instead of watching her student struggle to pay attention, Cissé grabbed a sheet and tied him to her back.
Cissé teaches Anatomy and Physiology 1 at Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville, GA. She said that her student is ambitious and just needed a little help.
“It made me very happy, very thrilled to be able to use my back (which was available) in order to give her the ability to study. I didn’t want her to worry about the baby, I wanted her to forget for a few seconds so she could concentrate on the class,” Cissé said.
Cissé’s daughter, Anna, shared the photograph of her mother wearing the baby on her back along with a caption that led with, “my mom is my role model.” The photo was shared over 10k times and garnered numerous comments from students who have experienced Cissé’s magic first hand. One comment cited her as the GOAT.
According to Anna, Cissé held the baby on her back as she taught the three hour course. She even fed him.
Cisse’s small act and the why behind it is what the village is about.
As for where she learned to strap a baby onto her back so perfectly, Anna credits it to her mother’s African roots. She also tweeted that she felt “so blessed to be raised by a woman who loves the world as much as her own children.”
