Ms. Darby Schaefering

Hello Peabody Eagles! My name is Ms. Darby Schaefering and I work for the Urban League as a student and family mentor where we partner with Peabody to provide the best learning environment for our wonderful scholars!

I received my Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree from Fontbonne University in 2019, where I played on the women’s soccer team for 4 years and I recently graduated with my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from St. Louis University!

I am looking forward to working with the wonderful students, families, and staff at Peabody and I am SO excited to be here! I LOVE working with kiddos because I am a big kid at heart!

A few things to remember:

  1. Never hesitate to reach out, our team wants to support your family in any way we can!
  3. A little progress each day adds up to big results.
  4. Focus on the steps in front of you not the whole staircase.
