Michael Hubler

Dr. Michael S. Hubler earned his doctorate of education degree from Regent University and his masters of administration degree from Radford University, where he was a graduate teaching fellow. His passion for helping children with behavioral and life issues led him to develop a system of behavioral assistance in Indian River County, FL for which they were named the outstanding minority education facility for the state of Florida. This drive to change behavioral outcomes led him to continue his education to earn an education doctorate in social and emotional learning (personal growth and development of young children). His outstanding service work to assist children and families earned him honors as Brevard County’s citizen of the year twice (pop. 560,000) and humanitarian of the year for central Florida. He has also published over 40 early childhood education books and curriculums as Time to Sign’s Director of Research, Training, and Curriculum Development.
