Students at Woodbury Elementary School are turning into peer teachers as part of a coaching program for the ST Math curriculum.

Students who advance through the curriculum are offered opportunities to coach other students in need of help after undergoing training from Woodbury Instructional Coach Julie Thede. Coaching is going on at all levels between kindergarten and fourth grade at the school.
