Daniel Krebs, a professor at the University of Louisville, was photographed playing computer games in the hallway outside of his classroom with Monica Willard's 4-year-old son, Marcus, and 5-year-old daughter, Mikayla.
Willard told ABC News she tried to get her kids to sit quietly on the couch before Dr. Krebs intervened.
"The class didn't know they were there until Marcus came banging on the door," Willard said. "Dr. Krebs said, 'Don't worry. Go take your test. I've got them.'"
"The little boy knew the names of the [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles] and he's yelling out these Italian names," Krebs said. "I didn't know who he was talking about. And the girl climbed on my shoulders and pulled my hair. But, apparently, I was so distracted that I didn't know people were taking photos of me."
After Willard stepped out of the classroom to check on her kids, she asked her friend and fellow exam-taker Victoria Henry to snap the shot since her kids commandeered her phone.
Henry told ABC News she couldn't resist posting the "kind act" online.
Willard said her kids are now big fans of Dr. Krebs.
"They didn't want to leave. They really just had a lot of fun. They want to come back to class with me."
