Dalyce joined Oakland Schools in 2010 after working for nine years as a Resource Room Teacher in a local district. Dalyce started her first years in Oakland County in an Emotionally Impaired Support Room that integrated TEAM and Project Adventure. She moved into supporting struggling readers and providing intensive intervention at the high school level and creating collaborative co-teaching classrooms in English, History and Science. Her primary goal was to empower high school students to be critical thinkers and inspire them to be self-advocates. Dalyce received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from Saginaw Valley State University.
In her role as an education consultant in the Special Education Professional Learning Unit at Oakland Schools, Dalyce works collaboratively with Learning Services to support educators in order to improve student success and increase engagement for students with and without IEPs. She provides direct support to districts (especially secondary) to explore system delivery models, data collection and intervention support. Dalyce is the lead consultant for Accelerated Adolescent Reading Imitative (AARI) with the goal of closing the achievement gap for students with IEPS and at-risk. She is also involved in job-embedded learning, Project Zero, Cultures of Thinking and Universal Design for Learning.
Outside of the office, Dalyce spends most of her time camping, traveling and spending time with her children.
