A teacher's musical plea: Let it snow.

A Tennessee third grade teacher wrote this clever Adele parody last year. I thought teacher Mary Morris' performance would strike a chord with Atlanta area teachers this weekend.

A teacher at Rush Strong School in Strawberry Plains, Tenn., Morris scored a viral hit with "Snow," which is based on the Adele monster hit "Hello."

In the chorus, Morris belts out a sentiment likely to be well understood by Georgia teachers:  "If it's gotta be so cold, the least that it can do is snow."
