Student Shares 27 Most Adorable Things Her Math Professor Has Said During Class

If someone would ask you to name a few of the best things from your college days, most of you would definitely mention at least one amazing professor. Even though we often think of educators as people with dull and strict personalities who just can’t miss an opportunity to discipline us, this trope is not prevalent in real life. There are many teachers and professors, who are remembered by their students as funny, kind and just simply adorable. Take for instance this professor, who prompted her student named Ellie to actually collect all of the funny and wholesome things she has said during the classes. She named the list “A running tally of adorable things my 20-something-year-old math prof has said” and each quote will make you want to have this guy as your math professor. Sadly not all of us are so lucky but at least we can read about educators like him. So, don’t hesitate and scroll below for the list of things she has said!
