Kari's Blog(ish)

Over the past 12 years, I have been asked many questions regarding the 5-point scale, and other awesome systems for teaching social and emotional information. I have decided to share these questions with others who might be wondering about the same things. I have decided to call this a "blog" just in case I feel like spewing my opinion from time to time, this is reasonable, right?

If you have your own burning question, feel free to ask me at and I will try to answer it here.
