Niagara-Wheatfield teacher 'geeks out' to refurbish district's cranky computers


Tonawanda News — How they’ll become accessible to the students, though, is the second part of Mikulski’s vision. He said he’s getting ready to open up the Penguin Lab and Tutoring Center, which is exactly what it sounds like. The computers, he said, would be available for sign-out by teachers, but the room would also be available for students to receive tutoring from their older Falcon district mates in a special setting.

He said he’s excited to get this part of the program up and running soon.

“We have a room in our building currently used as storage,” he said. “It’s filled with boxes. We’ll be taking this set of laptops and putting them in there, creating a lab that’s not just accessible for teachers to sign out, but there will be opportunities for high school students to come over and tutor, whether in a small group or one-on-one, the middle school students.”
