Dr. Yanni visits Gladwyne Third Graders

Superintendent Dr. Steven Yanni continues to tour schools as he gets to know and learn more about LMSD students. He visited Gladwyne Elementary School on Tuesday, September 19, 2023.

In Ms. Unger and Ms. Gilbert's third-grade classes, he took part in a "Me Museum" activity, during which he showed students several items and explained why they were meaningful to him. 

Dr. Yanni's "Me Museum" included a book, because he loves to read; AirPods, because he loves to listen to music; an air tag, because he often loses his keys; Diet Pepsi, which is his favorite drink; and a photo of his beloved dogs, Preston and Stewie.

The students found that they had many things in common with Dr. Yanni, as they, too enjoy music and reading, have dogs and sometimes lose things like keys. One student did warn Dr. Yanni that soda, particularly Diet Pepsi, wasn't a healthy beverage choice.

Dr. Yanni also answered students' questions about what his days are like, how it feels to be a boss and whether he can make new rules about which balls are allowed on the playground during recess.
