Coordinator of Student Wellness and Athletics
Stephanie Valletta has been a Special Education Teacher in the Ithaca City School District since 2012. In that time, she has worked as our varsity and JV girls' basketball coach and also coached our Unified Sports basketball team. Before her time in Ithaca, she taught and coached in Stafford County, Virginia. Stephanie graduated from the University at Buffalo with a Bachelor's Degree in History and Political Science and earned her Master's Degree in Adolescent and Special Education from St. John Fisher College in Rochester. A native of Syracuse, New York, Stephanie is a devoted mother to her daughter, Lilliana, and is an avid Syracuse Orange fan. Stephanie is looking forward to continuing her work as a coach this year and is also very excited about her new role as the Athletic Compliance Officer. Stephanie sees this as an opportunity to help ICSD student-athletes increase their engagement in and out of the classroom and as a way to help students reach their goals in high school and beyond.
