     Welcome to Cooley !

    Dear Parents,

            Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  This is an exciting time for your middle schooler and for me!  I am looking forward to working with your child, your family, and to a happy and productive school year. 

             I am Mrs. Denise Arzola-Bass (Mrs. Bass), a teacher here at Cooley Middle School.  This year I will be co-teaching 7th grade  inclusion ELA and inclusion math.   This is my ninth year teaching here at the Higley Unified School District.   Over all this will be my 17th year of teaching.  I truly enjoy working with students of this age groups;  middle school being my favorites.   This is why I chose to come back to teaching middle school.  I am happy to be part of Cooley Cougars, it is a great place to be!
            My husband David also has a background in education. I have two children; my son is 26 years old and has a B.S. in Electronic Engineering.  My daughter is 14 year old , a freshman in high school, and also is a former Cougar from Cooley Middle

            Be assured that I will do my best to make this school year an enjoyable time for your middle schooler, but also a time filled with learning. It will be a great year!                                                                                  

    Once again, welcome to Cooley. Let’s work together to make this the best year ever!
