About

Betty Hubschman has taught students of all ages, from elementary age to adults in corporations, community colleges, and university (undergraduate and graduate) levels. After teaching in the Florida public school system, she was a manager, computer liaison, and instructor in health and insurance companies in South Florida. Twenty-five years after completing her BA in Elementary Education, she attained her MS in Adult Education at FIU, feeling that Lifelong Learning was important for self-fulfillment. As a graduate assistant, she taught research courses at the graduate level, and realized she needed her doctorate to accomplish her new dream, to become a university professor. 

Upon attaining her EdD in Adult Education/Human Resource Development (HRD) from FIU, with minors in Educational Computing and Research and Development, Betty started teaching at Barry University, in Miami Shores, FL. She advanced to Full Professor and became the Department Head of the Adult Ed/HRD program. Her research involves quantitative and mixed method studies on educational practices, mentorship, leadership and learning, and organizational development, and she has published in peer-reviewed journals, as well as presented at conferences throughout the country.

After living in South Florida for most of her life, Betty moved to North Carolina in 2013 to be near the grandchildren. She and her husband Mike enjoy all there is to enjoy in North Carolina, and love to travel to visit family and friends.
