    coolheaded and warmhearted

    Dear Teachers,

    The following sentence is to be addressed to highschool students.

    "Be coolheaded and warmhearted in everything you do!"

    Does above sentence make sense and sound natural to a native speaker?

    Your advice will be appreciated.

    Yes, it's fine, or you could say something like 'Keep a cool head and be warm hearted...'

    Sorry, I have made two spelling mistakes in above message: I should have spelled " learners" and "warmhearted." I am afraid the latter mistake has ruined my message. I've told myself that I should keep a cool head whenever I write."

    Re: coolheaded and warmhearted

    boone, a kind sentiment is never ruined by a tiny mistake.

    I would, for what it's worth, use hyphens: cool-headed and warm-hearted
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
