Ms. Darby

Hello everyone - I am Darby Laing, please call me Ms. Darby (she/her). This is my first year as an art teacher at LEAP high school. I have been an artist and graphic designer for over 20 years. I am thrilled to be here! 

The St. Paul community is my home, where I have lived most of my adult life. I was born in Florida and my family moved to New York, Indiana, and finally to Minnesota when I was a teenager. I speak Spanish and enjoy learning languages. My hobbies include vegetable gardening, cooking and woodworking. I am happiest when I am outside in nature. When I am not at work, I like to spend time with my husband, son and relatives. 

I look forward to continuing the excellent tradition of art, artists and creativity here at LEAP High school.
