One Last Goodbye

Dearest Students, Families and Friends at St. Gregory,

I just wanted to post one last thank you to all of you.  The generosity that you have shown me over the past year and a half has been incredibly heart-warming. You’ve helped me to grow and learn.  You’ve helped me to become a better teacher and a better person.

Thank you.  Thank you!  THANK YOU!!

I will forever remember my time with all of you with extreme joy and gratitude.  


If you remember one thing, remember this:

Be nice… and when it’s hard to be nice, try harder.

If you can remember a second thing, remember this:

No chickens. No babies.

Do’t be afraid of trying new things.  Don’t whine about trying new things.

When something is hard to do, it usually means that you need time and help to learn that thing… and that’s what school should be all about.

I’ll miss all of you,

-Mr. Stepan


More News

I’m sorry for any unrest that this may cause…

I will be teaching at St. Gregory for one more week.

While the circumstances for this news had nothing to do with me, I am very happy to get to spend more time with all of you.  Get ready for a few more days of this face!

Our party will have to wait until next week.  We’ll discuss tomorrow in class.
