Motes started a community garden that serves to provide her students with daily lessons in science and health, ownership and community pride, and is an opportunity to nurture something and watch it grow. Last year, Motes and her students donated a portion of their harvest to a local homeless shelter. A giving and generous person, Motes is dedicated to instilling the same love of service in the students at Duncan Elementary School.
