Learn how one Tucson teacher turned carrots into a lifelong lesson.


Arizona is home to incredible teacher leaders — teacher leaders who dare to innovate and dream of what is possible.

When Borton School teacher Molly Reed brought carrots to school one day, they were covered in dirt with the stems and roots still attached. Confused, her students asked her what they were, as their only experiences with carrots had been those in cellophane packaging at the grocery store or in the school cafeteria. Realizing her students had no concept of where their food came from, she and others set out to build a garden. Watch Molly’s story.
