This teacher was doing lesson plans during her labour!
Jennifer Pope, from Texas, gave birth to a baby girl last month, she is currently the internet’s new favourite person after a picture of her working hard in the hospital ward was uploaded to social media.
“No, she is not doing her taxes. Those papers would be her lesson plans her husband is about to go drop off with her sub in the parking lot.
“Also, next week is Teacher Appreciation Week here in Texas. Spoil them rotten because even in labor, they care. No lie, she gave birth less than an hour later.
“This post is about showing the dedication of a teacher (I was one myself for many years). Seriously, be kind or scroll down.”
Jennifer has worked as a teacher for over 10 years and has three older children, she told Huffington Post that she wants her picture to inspire other women to know that they can be parents and have careers.
“Being a working mom is hard ― like really hard,” said Pope. “But, it’s also so rewarding and fulfilling. I can’t imagine myself in any other profession.”
She added that she hopes the picture will help illustrate teachers’ dedication to their job and their students: “To many ― perhaps all ― of us, this is so much more than a job. It’s an all-encompassing passion,”
What an amazing woman!
