My name is Robin Carlisle and I live and work in Flowery Branch, Hall County, Georgia at Lake Lanier. After talking with Dea Irby, who lives In Habersham County, Georgia, just up I-985 from me, we thought it would be a grand idea to set up some regional networking categories here, so that those of us nearby to each other may do a little regional networking.
For now, at least, I figured putting one for each state would wreck the first page of Topics, so I divided the country into six regions and added an international region to the mix.
I’m a professional writer, editor, videographer, internet marketing and small business consultant, and teacher who had the honor and privilege of teaching English in Sachkhere, Republic of Georgia (former Soviet Union) last year. Their president wants their children to learn English within the next few years to ensure their country’s peace and prosperity. And I still want to help him do that.
Teaching and living in such a beautiful country, both their people and their landscape, was an experience I’ll never forget and long to return to someday. My goal is to convert my living into an international one, where I can spend winter months here in Georgia USA and the milder months in their Georgia working on my laptop and volunteering in their community teaching English. I’ll most definitely be a double trouble international Georgia girl then!
Another goal is to help my school there build internet resources online for our students there. They have no heat in the school, no chalk, little paper, and few resources but big hearts and a desire to learn English. Any ideas or help you could throw my way on this project of the heart would be greatly appreciated.
Happy Networking to all of my SE Region neighbors! Hope we’ll all get to meet someday!
