Delisle, 60, brings nearly four decades of education experience to bear as a principal adviser to the secretary on prekindergarten, elementary-, and secondary-education issues. In that role, she is particularly focused on developing and implementing policies that encourage state and local agencies to improve achievement among elementary- and secondary-school students. Delisle joined the department after spending three years as Ohio's 35th state superintendent of public instruction. Before that, she was superintendent of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City District, where an educational center was named after her in 2011. Delisle has also been a teacher, a gifted-education specialist, and an elementary-school principal. In addition, she taught graduate-level courses at Kent State University, Ashland University, and Ursuline College, all in Ohio. Delisle majored in psychology and education at Springfield College, in Massachusetts and received a master's in special education and a postgraduate degree from Kent State. She is from Waterbury, Conn.
