Welcome to Biology. My name is Christie Palladino, and I am a proud graduate of the Williston-Elko High School class of 1995. This is my second year teaching at Williston-Elko, my 11th year in education, and my fourth teaching at the high school level. Prior to teaching high school, I taught at the Medical College of Georgia where I also conducted educational research. I completed my undergraduate training at Davidson College, medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina, and a Masters degree in research at the University of Michigan. I am an obstetrician-gynecologist, and through this experience I have seen firsthand how science impacts our lives. My love for teaching has brought me to Williston-Elko to share these experiences with our students.
