Brief Biography

Kathy Lewis Hawkins I have been in education almost twenty-eight years. Twenty-five of the twenty-eight years has been with the GNETS Program. I began my career as a paraprofessional for two years. When I entered the education arena, it was not long before I knew this as my calling. I became a teacher, and taught in the GNETS Program for sixteen years. I am currently a GNETS Director. I am very passionate about the work the GNETS network does, and I am fully convinced we make a difference in the lives of many students.

I currently hold a BA degree in Psychology, a Masters of Education degree in Behavior Disorders, and a Specialist degree in Supervision and Administration.

I believe each day to be a “Fresh 24” for students and staff. Each day presents new opportunities to grow and learn. I devote 110% of myself to the GNETS program as I truly believe the students and staff need me and trust me to oversee a program that is a vital part of the success of our students, and the professional growth of our staff.

We are a PBIS GNETS Program, and I believe in recognizing the full potential of staff, students, and parents.


Dorothy Floyd: I have worked in the public school system for 26 years. The past 15 years I have had the privilege of serving Sandhills GNETS with EBD students in Augusta, GA. My career in education began as an elementary school first grade paraprofessional. I also served public schools as a remedial reading and math teacher and as an elementary and middle school counselor. I am proud to call myself a GNETS teacher. Sandhills GNETS is part of my extended family; it is a calling.

Vickie Ramos:I have been in education for 36 years. I started out to be an ecologist. One summer I worked with children with autism as a means of getting money to pay for school. I was hooked immediately. I returned home and changed my major, much to my parents’ dismay.

I got involved in student education organizations and attended any conference, training available in addition to my college courses. I graduated in 1979 with degrees in special education and psychology.

I got my first job with Lawton B Evans Psychoeducational Program, now Sand Hills that fall. I have been involved in teaching ever since. I can truly say I love to teach.

Presentation Abstract

We will begin with a PowerPoint presentation on implementation of PBIS in our GNETS setting. It will include what we have learned through our successes and our mistakes. The session will transition to small group activities to discuss, share and brainstorm behavioral and academic interventions which will include simulations and problem solving activities. We will use data from the session and sample data from our sites. In addition, to the direct presentations we will include displays of actual events and products. Throughout the session, we will model PBIS reinforcement based on a matrix developed for the session.

The PowerPoint will summarize the methods we have used to get buy in from students, parents, and staff. We will talk about the Parent Academy events we have organized and include examples of tools that parents can use to incorporate PBIS strategies in the home. In addition, the participants will see a demonstration on the use of a point sheet based on the matrix that gives parents an opportunity to reward their child for PBIS expectations seen in the home.

Participants will review and use session data to develop two graphs, a brief lesson in ELA and/or Math, and a behavior intervention. The participants will be grouped by elementary and middle/high school levels to complete these activities. Presenters will also share apps and software that have been useful when developing PBIS lessons in our program.

Finally, participants will be able to join and share ideas through a Wiggio group designed for this presentation.
