Mr. Schiffler appreciates how excited students are when they leave with their new knowledge.

“I wanted to know what I didn’t know,” Cheney said. “You know how to navigate but always have a feeling there’s an easier way.”

He highly recommended the computer courses at the senior center.

“I can do almost everything completely now,” Cheney said. “I learned how the digital world really works.”

“This is a great chance for our senior citizens to come to class and learn the basics of computers and join the online world,” said John Gillen, Computer Club secretary.

Mrs. Schiffler likes the interaction and imparting knowledge.

“It makes us feel good to help people,” Mr. Schiffler said.
