You Are Cooler than Chocolate


I received the best Valentine’s Day card this year. If you look carefully, you will see that the picture originally said, “I love you more than chocolate.” The giver changed the message to “you are cooler than chocolate.” That point is really moot. The sentiment is there.

Since getting this note, I have smiled over it several times. Why? Consider how this student might feel at our school and what actions and interactions have led to these feelings. How fantastic.

I leave you with this short but sweet post.

Are you cooler than chocolate for your students? How do you know?
