'Digital Farm Pen Pals'

Jessica Santiago-Sterzinar teaches in the Bronx. Rachel Chastain teaches in rural Alabama. While where they teach couldn't be more different, these two teachers have students with A LOT in common. Both Jessica and Rachel work with special needs students and their class curriculums focus on agriculture. Jessica, a tech wizard, created a platform for the classes to post videos and share information about their school agriculture projects and state commondities.
