In 2015, as a homeschool mom of 6, Dalena realized that she could not do the homeschool thing alone. She invited other kids into her home and offered to share the workload with another homeschooling mom. In 2018 she formed a scholé community group, Apollos Scholé Community. Today she manages Apollos, providing classes and social activities for 30 plus kids, and operates a Prenda Microschool for kids in 2nd-8th grade. She also began AIM Educational Collaborative LLC to provide assistance and coaching for others who would like to try Autonomous, Innovative, and Missional educational models. She operates a hybrid model microschool called AIM High. She is also the founder of WISE, Wichita Innovative Schools and Educators, a collaboration of educational entrepreneurs in the Wichita area.
