MDC professor Michael Walton celebrates 50 years
Professor Michael Walton is celebrating a 50 year milestone of teaching at Miami Dade College’s (MDC) North Campus. It is estimated he has taught and mentored more than 18,000 students, many of whom have had children who has took his classes.
During his career Walton has been a professor through the evolution of information technology and the explosion of computer science in the business and higher education landscape.
Walton enrolled at MDC in 1965 and earned an Associate in accounting. He transferred to the University of West Florida to complete his Bachelor of Science in accounting.
In 1969, Walton was hired as a full-time instructor at the North Campus to teach various programming classes in IT which was then a relatively new field. Later, Walton completed his M.S. in Computer Technology at Barry University.
“I love teaching, introducing new students to the world of IT and showing how it can help them in their various majors,” Walton said. He is not slowing down anytime soon. “My legacy began here, and I will continue for another 50 years if I can.”
