Take 2: Montera Middle School teacher wins award

jjonesresize.jpgAnother hearty congratulations to Juliana Jones, who was selected as one of the top two teachers of the year for Alameda County. She teaches math at Montera Middle School, as one of you pointed out.

And an apology. Earlier this morning, I wrote that Jones taught at another middle school.

Jones has been at Montera for about six years. One of her colleagues tells me that many her students — who have struggled with the subject in the past — make it to algebra by the eighth grade.

    Congratulations, Juliana! I also wanted to put a plug in for the fantastic math program at Montera. My daughter was in algebra in 7th grade and is now in geometry. The math teachers are all fantastic and the kids that need a challenge in math, get it! By the way, Montera is going through a renaissance this year with a great new principal, involved parents, and rejuvinated teachers. Check it out if you are looking at middle schools for next year.
