Meet Mrs. Vadala

Hi LVST families! My name is Josette Vadala, and I am the Preschool and PreK Lead Teacher and Managing Director at our amazing facility. I was born and raised in New York City, and I moved to the Bethlehem area after marrying my husband in 2011. We have a spunky, silly, sweet. handsome boy named James & an energetic, protective shepherd/retriever named Thor.

 

I am certified to teach in both PA and NY. I earned my dual Master's in Teaching Early Childhood Education/Childhood Education from Fordham University, my Bachelor's in Psychology from New York University, and I have also earned additional credits to acquire my Special Education certification from St. Joseph's University. I have over 10 years of experience in the early childhood education field, as my passion is to provide young children with equal opportunities to achieve success via differentiated learning that not only respects diverse learning styles but also speaks to the kids’ interests. Adding active and movement components to these domains increases learning potential & sets foundations for future accomplishment. LVST marries all of these areas together.

 

 I am truly honored & excited to be able to dedicate myself to your kiddos' learning and growth!

Meet Ms.Sylvainus

Hey LVST families! My name is Alexa Sylvainus, and I am the Sports Director and Assistant Preschool and PreK Teacher at the Turf. I grew up and currently reside in Nazareth. I attended Syracuse University, where I studied Inclusive Elementary and Special Education with a minor in Mathematics. Some of my favorite memories in college were cheering on Syracuse sports teams in the Carrier Dome, as well as living in New York City while student teaching in some of the most diverse and unique schools in the city. 

 

From a young age, I knew that working with children was my passion. I have over 8 years of experience in early childhood education and having the opportunity to merge my passion for early childhood education and sports at LVST is a dream come true! I believe that every child learns best when they are invited into a positive, fun, and explorative environment that gives them the tools to unlock their full potential to learn. Not only am I committed to providing this environment at LVST, I’m also a firm believer in the power of sports and fitness to develop fundamental confidence and leadership skills from a young age. I’m excited to get to know each individual personality and supply them with the appropriate experiences and tools to grow—the sky’s the limit! 

 

When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, or playing and watching sports. I am a huge Dallas Cowboys and New York Mets fan. I am also very big into fitness and spend much of my spare time weightlifting at the gym. 

 

See ya at The Turf!
