Steve V. Coxon, Ph.D.

Steve V. Coxon, Ph.D. is a veteran public school teacher who now serves as assistant professor of gifted education at Maryville University in St. Louis. He directs Maryville’s programs in gifted education including the graduate program, grant-funded projects to serve high-ability children from populations traditionally underrepresented in gifted programs, and the Maryville Summer Science and Robotics Program for High Ability Students.

Steve has two primary interests in his work: 1) identifying high ability children in populations traditionally underrepresented in gifted programs and helping teachers to nurture their potential and 2) illuminating means by which teachers can develop spatial ability, creativity, and other important talents in children for future success in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math fields. He conducts research on these topics and has published, presented, and consulted widely on them.

Steve volunteers as a judge adviser for FIRST LEGO League competitions in the St. Louis region. He also serves as the book review editor for Roeper Review and writes the column “Scientifically Speaking” in Teaching for High Potential. He was the 2010 recipient of the Joyce VanTassel- Baska Award for Excellence in Gifted Education from The College of William and Mary.

Steve lives in St. Louis with his wife and two young children.
