Meeting Darcy Leech first time, you can’t help but be drawn to her enthusiasm and energy. There is a light and a determination that is palpable right away. Shortly before the birth of her second child, we met at a Mothers of Preschoolers gathering in Great Bend.
She, husband Daniel and son Eli moved to Great Bend at the end of August, 2015, in time for both teachers to begin work in the local school district. Darcy, a former English teacher, became the district’s first-ever instructional technology coach, and Daniel teaches world history and geography at Great Bend High School. Their son Eli, now three, became a big brother when the couple welcomed daughter Hannah Grace in November.
