Dwayne Dyce has dedicated his life to empowering educators and school administrators with tools to successfully run schools, manage classrooms and provide state-of-the-art instruction using technology that both facilitate student learning while building their technological skills. Following an eventful year as the appointed Chairman of the Jamaican Diaspora Education Taskforce during the height of the COVID pandemic, Dr. Dyce saw an opportunity to expand the training he provided to the thousands of teachers and school leaders through the establishment of Education Solutions International (ESI) to provide both free and low-cost services to school communities in order to expand the reach of services through scholarships and sponsorships garnered through philanthropic donations.
He has taught in Catholic, Public, Charter, and Private Schools in Jamaica, Florida, Washington D.C., and New York City. He is currently serving as a Middle School Math teacher, House Advisor, and a member of the Professional Development Committee at The Dalton School, a prestigious private school located on the upper east side in NYC.
Judy Villeneuve-Dyce has over 8 years of experience working in public school education, and 7 years of experience doing US Immigration for international business employees at Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley. Early in her career, Mrs. Villeneuve-Dyce worked in print journalism at Black Enterprise Magazine, in broadcast journalism on Public Acces Television, and communications and marketing in the Sony Black Music Division.
A strong believer in the power of education to create a firm foundation for people of all underrepresented nations to achieve success, Mrs. Villeneuve-Dyce has remained committed to giving back. Since as far back as middle school, she has volunteered at retirement homes, painted schools, planted gardens at schools, and fed homeless families at soup kitchens. In 2015, she founded the non-profit Support Education through Agriculture (SETA), in partnership with 4-H Club schools in Jamaica, to provide the land and opportunity, for schools without a garden, to explore farming as a way to learn Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. SETA was dissolved in 2020 with the onset of the COVID pandemic.
Mrs. Villeneuve-Dyce was awarded her B.A. in Communications from New York University and her M.A. in International Affairs Governance, Rights and Statistics from the Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment, within the School of Public Engagement at The New School.
