Western New York On Hubpages

I live in Western New York in a beautiful area between Lake Erie and Chautauqua Lake.

I am a retired teacher. I have several hobbies to keep me busy and I am really enjoying retirement. I have spent the better part of my life around small children as I taught Elementary Physical Education. Later I moved to the High School level where I taught the last five years of my career. Coaching Swimming, basketball and softball took alot of my time when I was young but when my two boys were born I gave up coaching and spent most of my time with them. I have had the absolute joy of watching many children, including my own two, play and laugh and have fun which has been a true blessing in my life.

My hobbies include spending time collecting Lake Erie Beach Glass with which I make jewelry. I love taking area landscape photos and have had occcasionally sold one or two. I like to write about travel and experiences. and often include my own photos in my hubs.

My interests help me to create Hub pages. As I begin to get more and more involved in the activity of writing, I am finding new online friendships and enjoy reading about others passions and interests. I only hope that I will learn, grow and discover more and more about myself as well as others as I continue this journey into the world of reading and writing on hubpages.

Please feel free to check out my pages and make comments. Happy Hubbing!
