Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Heather Lowry

My name is Heather Lowry, I am the Behavior Resource Teacher here at Newberry Elementary School.  This is my 14th year in public education, with another 4 years in private education and preschool.  I have taught Pre-K through 6th grade. I have my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and my masters in Educational Leadership. I've also completed my Registered Behavior Technician coursework.  I love learning and growing.  If I can't do something or don't know something, I'm always willing to ask and find out. 

I moved to Gainesville when I was in the 7th grade and went to Alachua County Schools for middle school and high school.  My husband, Levi and I have been married almost 19 years and we have two beautiful children.  We also have two fur babies as well.  I am so lucky to be on the NES team.  I am definitely a Panther Proud!

As the BRT, I have the privilege or rewarding awesome behavior and good choices.  
*Snowie Gator Days monthly
*9 Weeks PBIS Events including Trunk or Treat
*Do Good tickets to use at the School Store weekly
*Special Breakfasts to honor students who make GREAT behavior choices every other month
I am excited about all the PBIS opportunities we have this year! 

What Is PBIS?

  • PBIS is a 3-tier, data-driven, systematic plan designed for reducing unwanted student behaviors in order to increase student engagement and learning. The plan holds students accountable to school-wide expectations through engaging, focused instruction, and a reward system and behavior analysis.
    Behavior Resource Teacher (BRT) support is appropriate for teacher behavior management challenges at TIER 1 (e.g. new teacher/difficult class), TIER 2 (e.g. reward chart with increased incentive for student needing repetitive re-teaching for replacement behaviors) and TIER 3 (e.g. intensive FBA/BIP to address behavior modification).

How Is PBIS Implemented?

  • When students are seen "Doing Good" they are given a "Do Good" ticket. As tickets are collected, students may use them to buy items from the school store or to gain entry into a PBIS-Sponsored event.
