Congratulations to Juliana Jones, a seventh- and eighth-grade math teacher at
Westlake Middle School Montera Middle School. The Oakland Teacher of the Year learned last night that she was being honored as one of the two best teachers in the county.
A spokeswoman for the county says Jones has been at Montera for about six years — and that she taught in Beverly Hills before coming to Oakland.
Linda Lamoureaux, a special education teacher at Livermore High School, was the other winner.
