AGT Mission Statement:
To ignite a passion for lifelong learning and a growth mindset through multidisciplinary project based education as students learn about nature and the environment and how they might improve their contribution towards helping our home, making sustainable decisions now and in the future.
Welcome to AGT! My name is Loraina Paiste and I am a proud military wife and mother of two kiddos. I grew up in VA where I was an active member of the swim team, debate team and Blue Ridge Virtual Governors School Program. I graduated from Old Dominion University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications and Marketing. After teaching for a few years, I obtained a Masters degree in Education. I have enjoyed traveling all around the US teaching in several states. I absolutely LOVE teaching, it is my passion and my purpose!
My goal for this class is for students to create and develop their voice of passion and self-efficacy through education. We will explore this amazing place we live in and how we can make it better for the future! We will have hands-on enriched learning projects throughout the year. I look forward to teaching our AGT students this year!!
