Steve Taylor, adjunct professor of mathematics, is the 2015 recipient of STLCC-Wildwood’s Faculty to Faculty Award. 

The annual award is presented to adjunct faculty members who demonstrate excellence in teaching and support of student success. Recipients are chosen by a committee and are recognized at the start of the spring semester. 

"I enjoy the high level of student enthusiasm as well as the deep sense of collegiality on the Wildwood campus," Taylor said. "It is an honor to be chosen for this award, and it is an honor to be part of such a great team of educators."

Taylor joined STLCC-Wildwood in fall 2014. In addition to teaching courses in mathematics, he has taken an active role on campus by serving as a math tutor and as a facilitator of the Math department’s open lab. Taylor also participates in professional development events, including Wildwood’s “Taste of Teaching” luncheons, which aim to provide faculty members will tools they can use in the classroom.  

“Steve is a dedicated and reflective educator who goes above and beyond for his students,” said Janet Berry, adjunct faculty member and chair of the award committee. “We are pleased to present him with the Faculty to Faculty Award because he brings so much to his students and our campus.”

Taylor holds both a master’s degree in mathematics and a bachelor’s degree in physics with an emphasis in astrophysics from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. He also is an avid amateur astronomer and enjoys using astronomy and general science to motivate mathematical learning in the classroom.
