Schools across the Chattanooga area and nation are closed in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, leaving many parents with additional responsibilities to ensure their children receive lesson plans at home. 

One Chattanooga mother, Brandalyn Shropshire, is finding a bit of humor in her newfound teaching duties to her 9-year-old daughter, Sydney. A video she posted to Facebook March 18 has garnered more than 15 million views, according to a release from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Shropshire works as assistant director of admissions at the university and performs as a professional comic on the weekends. 

"Father God, I am your humble servant. What I am not is a math teacher," Shropshire said in a video. "I ask that you send down your angels of the carry over, lord. Teach us that, if you carry the one over to the tenth place, you can get the answer."

Shropshire also doesn't like how frequently she finds the refrigerator door open at her house. 

"Yet again, the devil has attacked and sent down a tapeworm onto my child, lord God," she pleads. "I am not Denny's, Shoney's, IHOP nor Waffle House."

Shropshire's video has been featured on various national media outlets, including NBC Nightly News, and shared to numerous online platforms. She has been performing comedy for about 12 years, frequently uploading content to Facebook and performing at churches, birthdays, family gatherings and class reunions, the university's release states. 

Shropshire said she has tried "really hard" not to think about all of the attention the video is getting and will continue to produce content with the humor she finds in her daily occurrences for her fanbase.
