  1. Abate has continuously demonstrated unreasonable and innappropriate behaviors towards myself and my peers. She continuously takes it upon herself to barge into the restroom and invade others privacy to “stop the chatter”. While delivering a paper from another teacher, as I was instructed to do, Abate screamed at me to “get out of her classroom and stop causing extreme disruptions” and slammed the door in my face so hard I could feel the wind. I would be willing to estimate that well over half of the kids in my grade have been subject to her rude and inappropriate behaviors.

  2. As a former student of Mrs Abate I can recall multiple incidents where she’s personally attacked me and my fellow peers. In the classroom she usually gave us independent work and avoided teaching her teaching was mostly videos or her saying the same thing over and over again including racial slurs. In her classroom even though it was a nut allergy awareness classroom, but she would still let her students eat snacks. When a student would pull out food she would go over to them and without permission she would reach her contagious hand into the bag and eat the food and sometimes even take the bag and eat the WHOLE bag in front of the class. As a student with a nut allergy I think this is unacceptable and honestly appalling that a teacher doesn’t prioritize her students health. Not only are the students not safe in her class but our food isn’t safe. At a school event she threatened to kick me and all my friends out of party because one of my friends was having a crisis. And even though we were just trying to help our friend she still threatened to kick us all out because we went to an so called ” not permitted area.” There are countless more incidents with this teacher that I can recall so I personally hope that this teacher is terminated because the damage she’s done to young adolescents is far more then just worrying. the termination of Rebecca abate should’ve happened years ago.
