ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

Jude Miqueli looks every bit the part of rocker turned teacher – and she wears both hats equally well.

She sports neon green nail polish, a tousle of short brunette waves and bright tattoos on her forearms – as well as a t-shirt bearing the logo for “Bloomz,” an app that supports parent-teacher communication.

Despite her patient, soft-spoken cadence, Miqueli is obviously stoked about the software.

Miqueli serves as ambassador for “Bloomz” on the West Seattle Montessori campus. She describes it as basically like Facebook, only reserved for parents and teachers. She can post photos that only parents see, send regular notes and even create a fun way to reinforce positive behavior for her students.

Miqueli regularly gathers her first, second and third graders around her computer and asks them to nominate each other for good deeds, like sharing, saying thank you and any other positive behavior. They are also allowed to thank each other and mention traits for which they should be rewarded themselves.
