Knows what he's talking about. Loves what he does. Connects well with students and helps encourage them! Very inspiring and helpful. Would definitely recommend taking a senior art or photography

Mr. Steponas is the best teacher I had in High School. He practices what he preaches. He inspires his students.

Mr. Steponas will always tell you what could be improved in your work, and even if his advice seems weird it usually ends up working, so just swallow your pride and try it. Despite that, he does respect his students and is very understanding. Also lenient about deadlines if he sees you're putting in the effort. A bit quirky, VERY vocal about his politics. The dark room/pinhole camera work for photography is fantastic. Overall one of the better teachers here.

He's definitely passionate about photography and it inspires me to be more passionate about it too. He might try to look cool but reality he's a complete dork and surprisingly a rebel as a child (go ask him about the Mcdonald mascot ban and he'll know what you're talking about).

Honestly, he has one of the greatest teachers I've ever known. Besides being a photography teacher he has been a great person to help me out when I was going through tough times. He cares for his students and he makes the environment in the classroom so much fun. I miss being in his class but I try to visit ECI just to talk to him

May generally be a nice guy, and a fair teacher, but undeniably egotistic. A pretentious know-it-all who clearly has favourites.

Mr Steponas is hilarious. Photo's one of my favourite classes just because I get to hear him talk, XD. Also, if you do work at all, you get a good grade, which is ideal for stupid people like me. TT_TT
