Silvia and Chris Abbato at the last Commencement Exercises of the Legendary Emerson High School 2008
Sylvia and Chris Abatto, a lifetime dedicated to education. Mrs. Abatto is Assistant Superintendent of Schools in Union City. Mr. Abatto is a happy veteran from the Elizabeth School District Wars, so I’m I. If you teach in the inner city schools of Elizabeth you can teach anywhere, no joke. Chris Abatto was Emerson High School’s Teacher of The Year in 2007. Mrs. Abatto is an asset to Union City students and a proud Cuban-American woman, through hard work and dedication she has been able to reach her position at the Union City Board of Education, and use it to help the students and the teachers of this district. She has earned the respect and love of the community she serves. You couldn’t get two better educators, two better people. I’ll take all challengers!
