 Mrs. Hollenbeck has been teaching science for 24 years.  She taught at Eisenhower High School for fifteen years and has been at Cook for eight years.  She has two children in Cy-Fair schools.  Her philosophy for life is that everybody has to determine what his/her gift is, develop that gift and give back to society using that gift.  She hopes to help her students with that goal.

 My name is Lauren Navarrete and I have been teaching middle school science for three years.  I have been married for 3 1/2 years and we have a 1 year old son, Jackson.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and seeing rock shows!  I truly enjoy my job and look forward to many successes this year!  Please contact me anytime!!

Mrs. Lewis is a native Houstonian.  She attended Eisenhower H.S. and graduated from Sam Houston State University in 1988.  She has a sixth grade son and a seventh grade daughter that attend Arnold M.S.  Outside of school, Mrs. Lewis spends alot of time at her children's sporting events.  This is Mrs. Lewis' second year at Cook M.S. and she is looking forward to an exciting and successful year.
