I am privileged to have the pleasure to work with the fine administrators, office staff and teachers of Bass. Everyday I, the students and visitors are treated with the utmost respect. I can name 15 teachers, assistants and support staff I have worked with through my 2 students education. Each one is devoted to what they do and the children they teach. Mrs Rodgers, Mrs. Moore with her beautiful assistant Miss Roshanda, Mrs. Reyes, Mrs. Tatum, Mr. T, Miss P, the front office staff and the cafeteria lady. No one is left behind here. There are too many resources the teachers will utilize on behalf of the children. It is to be remembered, it takes a team including the parents to watch these fine young people flourish!! Go Bass!
