When Babysitter Bailed, Professor Stepped In To Watch Student's Kids

Some teachers motivate you to be your best, some help you understand very difficult material, and some will even watch your kids while you take a test.

Daniel Krebs, a professor at the University of Louisville, took on babysitting duties after one of his college students' babysitter bailed at the last minute.

Monica Willard was getting ready for her exam December 2 when her babysitter called to cancel. She brought her 4-year-old son Marcus and 5-year-old daughter Mikayla to the final and set them outside the classroom.

But before long, Marcus came banging on the door. That's when Mr. Krebs stepped outside to watch the kids.

"He could have been really mad or upset about it," Willard said. "But the fact that he was so kind and understanding of that, it was the world, it meant the world."

"A person like Monica, she's a noncommissioned officer going to school, she's a mom of two kids. I mean that's the kind of thing that's really impressive." Krebs told ABC News. "Me handling her kids for 40, 45 minutes, that's not impressive."

Willard says her kids are already asking when they can go back to class with her.
